Pay monthly sim...

When buying a pay monthly sim, what happens if you go over your allowed amount of data? Do you get extra charges? Or does it not work? Ty!

No extra charges at all. Data just stops working.

You cannot go over as data just stops once you reach your allowance. You then have a choice of buying a data bolt on or waiting until your allowance resets on your billing date.

You will also be sent a text to say when you've reached 80% of your data and another when all used.
It's cheaper to go for a tariff with slightly more data than you'd think as the bolt ons can work out expensive.

Thanks MI5! Could I ask you another question about buying direct from Apple? I'm looking at joining their yearly upgrade programme... Do you have to pay the £49.00 pounds each time around? Massive thanks! Really appreciate all your help! Thanks again! 😀😃😀 x.

The upfront fee might vary each year but yes you'll need to pay something I would imagine.
It comes off the total price for the handset though.

So if you traded in your old device, that would hopefully pay the upfront cost off? Massive thanks MI5! 😀😃😀 x.
