    Here is warning to everyone without unlimited texting. I only signed up for the 200 texts a month and was going to try and limit my usage, so I periodically requested DATA information from ATT. On the 16th, it said I had 22 messages left. On the 19th, it said I was 52 over! I knew I didnt use that many texts, so I called ATT.

    They told me that those messages are not up to date and can lag from up to 24 hrs. They were very kind and dropped the charges, and upgraded me to the 1500 message plan. No harm done. Just a heads up.

    Yea on their website AT&T says that usage details are not always up to date and that it may take up to 72 hours to "catch up."

    luckily i haven't had a problem with this, after about an hour its up to date:D
