A Data Cushion is a free 10GB pot of emergency data, valid for the entire 24 months of your plan. It kicks in automatically if you ever run out of your monthly data allowance.
If you run out of your monthly data allowance, any further data usage will automatically come out of your 10GB Data Cushion.
Your 10GB Data Cushion is automatically applied to your plan, so you don’t need to activate it or take any action to use it.
Your 10GB Data Cushion is valid for the entire 24 months of your plan, or until you use it all up.
If your 10GB Data Cushion runs out before your 24-month plan ends, your monthly data allowance won’t be affected. But after it runs out, you’ll have to pay standard out-of-bundle data charges if you exceed your monthly data allowance. Don’t forget, you can still buy a data add-on by logging into My Account online or the iD Mobile app.
You can check how much of your 10GB Data Cushion is remaining by logging into My Account online or the iD Mobile app. You’ll then see that your data doughnut includes your monthly data allowance and your 10GB Data Cushion as a combined total.
Your monthly data allowance is refreshed every month, but your Data Cushion never gets refreshed. So whenever you dip into your Data Cushion, you’ll see the decrease in your data doughnut on your dashboard!
If you’ve got any data left in your Data Cushion at the end of your 24-month plan, it will simply disappear. Sorry, but you can’t do a data rollover, or claim a refund for any unused data.
No, sorry. Once it’s gone, it’s gone. You’ll still get your monthly data allowance as usual, and don’t forget that you can buy a data add-on by logging into My Account online or the iD Mobile app.
