See Your Data Usage and How Much You’re Being Overcharged

data usage

Knowing your data usage in a month is important when choosing a phone plan that best fits your needs. If you are a low-data user (1GB to 10GB per month) there is no need to be paying for an unlimited plan every month. Pay for what you need so you can keep more money in your pocket.

Finding your data usage is quick and easy. Here is a step-by-step guide that can help your whole family see what they use the most data on from month-to-month. Let us help you find out how much data you are using and how much money you could be saving on high-speed data when you switch to Twigby.


Verizon customers can see data usage by following the steps below.

  1. Log into your Verizon account
  2. Click on “View usage”
  3. If you have multiple lines on your account, click on the drop down to see each individual line
  4. Scroll down and you will see how much data is left in your billing cycle
  5. Click the “View details” button to see the exact amount of data you have used and when you used it

If you want to quickly get an estimate of the data you have used during the current billing cycle, you can call #DATA (#3282) from your phone’s keypad. You will then hear an operator that says you received a text message. The text will tell you how much data is left. You can simply hang up the phone afterwards.


AT&T customers can see data usage by following the steps below.

  1. Log into your AT&T account
  2. Find “My devices”
  3. Click on “See usage details” for each device
  4. From there, you can look at data usage, text usage, and talk usage for current and past bill cycles

You can also dial *DATA# (*3282#) on your phone to receive a text message that will provide you with a quick estimate of your data and messaging usage.


T-Mobile customers can see data usage by following the steps below.

  1. Log into your T-Mobile account
  2. Click on “Check Usage”
  3. Choose between data, talk, or text and click the “Show details” tab
  4. From here, you can see each line on your account and its usage
  5. If you are using your phone, after selecting “Check usage”, you will need to scroll to your individual device and click “See all usage” for a detailed breakdown

If you want to quickly get estimates without logging into your account, you can check your usage with a text message from T-Mobile. By dialing the below on your phone’s keypad, you will receive a text telling you the minutes, text messages, and data used for the current period.

  • Check minutes used: Dial #MIN# (#646#)
