If you regularly find yourself spending more than your mobile cap plan allows, it would be nice to get some notification when you're getting near the limit. Optus is adding that option, with a scheme to send SMS notifications rolling out for its contract customers.
The scheme will send an alert when you have spent 80% of your cap value (as it's not completely real-time, that seems a sensible limit). Unfortunately there's no way to fast-track into this option -- you have to wait until Optus sends you a notification text.
Does that sound like a helpful option to you? Already get something similar from your provider? Tell us in the comments.Thanks Grim for the tip!
