    Can you turn off data warning messages?

    When I get near my 5GB, I get a warning text and email.
    Then another text and email every gig I go over that I'm being charged $10 more.

    This is strictly data on the phone, but as I don't have wifi access right now and I'm using quite a bit of Hulu Plus its easy to go a couple gigs over.
    I'd really rather not get a text for every $10 AT&T is charging me as it makes me consider switching to T-Mobile's unlimited data plan even more strongly.

    Yes I know I'm going to go over.. I just don't want to be constantly reminded of it. Didn't see an option in my account, so any ideas how I might turn this off?

    Only option would be to call 611 and see if they can do it for you. I have my doubts they can/will though.

    Left: iPhone 6+ on T-Mobile. Right: Comcast home internet connection.

    It's what the carriers agreed to do so the consumer doesn't get "billshock". No idea if it can be turned off.

    People can be unbelievable. Some want to sue because they don't get notified of going over data, some threaten to switch because they do get notified.

    If it makes you happier, go with Tmobile. If you travel at all, you will get exactly what you pay for.

    LOL @ this.l

    To the OP:

    A) ignore the texts
    B) stop wasting so much data

    If you text while driving, you're an idiot. End of story.
