    So I configured the phone for someone. She has 500mb data per month. I have put the monthly data limit at 500mb. Will data sense automatically turn off the mobile data connection or simply give a warning to turn it off yourself. I want to be absolutely sure she doesn't go over her limit.

    I have not hit the limit since I got it (Stupid AT&T), however, from what I understand, it wont outright turn the data off. It should start restricting an apps ability to run data in the background. Depending on the settings, of course. It will allow you to go over, but it's not going to be silent and passive about it.

    Thank you for your answer but I'm going to need a more precise answer from someone who knows what happens exactly.

    He is right. It just tries to reduce the data usage.

    You find more details If you read the datasense settings! There is a button as well with more information!

    But will she get a warning, a popup or something, when 500mb is reached so that she can turn off mobile data manually then?

    Or is the warning sooner, like around 450mb?

    Set the data limit very low to test what it does? Also, to be cautious set it at 400mb (after your test) to give her some wiggle room.

    Hm I think there is no warning, I reached it a few times and cant remember. But you can pin datasense and you will see a shield icon on the tile when its active

    I just tested it, you get a notification that tells you can go to Settings to turn off data. Disappointed it cant do it automatically. But this is WP8.1
    I need to now if WP8 also gives a notification, but I can't test it.... can anyone?

    At least it gives you a warning. Didn't know that...but 3 clicks to turn it off isn't a big deal once in a month. ...ok, twice, you have to turn it on again :)

    It is a big deal, because when you play a youtube vid and it reaches 500mb, by the time you have turned it off, it might have buffered many mb's already. It should automatically shut down data.. that would be the best.

    But still, I need to know if WP8 also gives a notification is data limit is reached..

    WP8 will give the notification and restricts the background data usage, almost similar to when we turn on the battery saver. It will give notification whenever she turn on the mobile data. It will not turn off, still a small amount will b used, like max 1 or 2mb

    Maybe you can make an app for that.
    And as long its not possible, pin datasense to start and check it frequently.
