A data plan is your gateway to all the most exciting places in the wireless universe. It lets your smartphone do what it does best: connect to cellular networks so you can search the Internet, use GPS, stream videos, download and install apps, access social media, and so much more.
Getting the most out of your data plan is easy, if you keep a few important things in mind. Smartphones track overall data usage, so you can always find out exactly how much you’re consuming, and decide whether you need more, or less, on your cellular plan. They also break down data usage by app, so you’ll know exactly how many gigabytes are being used by Facebook, Spotify, YouTube or any other apps that you spend lots of time using
Plus, you can preserve your cellular data by connecting to Wi-Fi whenever it’s available. Wi-Fi can be set up in your home, and is also widely available in most public spaces, like coffee shops, libraries, hotels, airports, and more. It allows you to do all the same things you can do on your cellular network, while saving your cellular data for times you’ll really need it, like when you’re traveling, or are simply out of range of any Wi-Fi networks.
And remember: with Consumer Cellular, you can always get exactly what you need. Our Connect Plans are completely flexible, so if you find that you actually need more (or less) data than your current plan provides, you can switch any time without fees, right up to the last day of your billing cycle. If you do happen to go over the amount your plan allows, we even automatically upgrade you to the plan that covers your usage.
It’s remarkable how much we now rely on our cellphones while on the go for information, entertainment, and even to get from place to place. By using it wisely, your mobile data plan will keep you connected whenever, and wherever, you need it.
