Spend Manager sets a monthly budget for data and also covers the cost-per-minute part of premium rate calls, picture messages and one-off premium rate texts. It’s handy for older people who may be unaware of hidden costs when it comes to texting or calling premium-rate numbers or downloading films or games.
Once Spend Manager is set up, an older person won’t be able to go over their set data allowance, call or text premium-rate numbers or send any more picture messages. However, they’ll still be able to use WiFi, and contact you when they need to, as all of our plans come with unlimited texts and minutes. Plus, if you need to check how many minutes an older person is using every month, you can check their plan details.
You can easily buy one of our Extras to boost a plan’s data or add unlimited picture messages. Extras usually work out cheaper than racking up out-of-plan charges and they’re automatically added to the bill. You can choose a one-off Extra or set up a recurring Extra.
