How to avoid overage

Miembro

I am curious to know if there is a feature that could send me a text message to let me know that I am nearing my plans minutes?  I would like to avoid going over my minutes so can anyone tell me if there is a way to either setup that feature or add that to my plan?

¡Gracias!

Self Serve Options are your friend. Check MyVerizon often or dial #MIN (#646) + Send and listen to the recording or wait for the text message to get your minute usage.

I use Mozilla's FireFox browser and with it, you can download a very small, plug in program that will track your minutes/text useage.  A small Verizon label and the current minutes used show up in the lower, right hand corner of the browzer's toolbar.  You can also set a limit on your minutes used so that if you reach that, the icon number changes to a bright red color to alert you even moreso.  And, by right-clicking on that icon, you click on "Go to Verizon Billing Site" to verify your info, bill, etc.

I just looked at Firefox add-ons and was unable to find this. Searched for Verizon, cell, minute. What's your plug-in called?

Here it is:  http://verizon-minutes-used.blogspot.com/

 

I've used it now for a little over a year with no problems.

 

PM if that link doesn't load.

I downloaded this file but it has a xpi extension.  How do you install that with that extension.  I can't get it to work.

Here is what I did:

 

Look at right side column and click on this:

 

You can download the new version here.

 

You then have to click on "Allow" in the right, near-top corner so FF allows the pop-up.

 

A menu pops up with this inside it:

 

Then click on "Install Now"

 

You will then get another pop-up that telss you it will install once you restart FF.

 

That should do it.
