So I have an unlocked Moto G4 Plus and I recently ordered a sim card using the BYOP feature from Republic Wireless. The sim card came in the mail about a week ago and I opened it and inserted it into my phone so I could activate a plan when I was ready.
My problem/question is the following.
I am very worried/confused if somehow my phone activated a plan without me activating it a plan before I wanted to activate it.
I have the Republic Wireless app and when I have the sim card inserted into my phone, at the very top left corner of my screen there is a triangle icon with a exclamation mark saying “Republic wireless Not activated on republic well help you get up and running” then it says “Grant app permissions” sometimes.
When I open the republic wireless app it also says “Get activated” implying I am not activated.
When I also went to my account settings on this website it says I have no phones activated.
HOWEVER what has me very confused/worried is this.
When I went into the settings of my phone I noticed there was a tab called something like “data usage or cellular usage”
When I clicked on it I am brought to a screen which shows me my cellular usage.
I am looking at it right now and in big green letters it says “12mb cellular data”
and under that is a bar that shows 0b and to the right 2.00gb
it says I used 12.01 cellular data between the dates of July 11-Aug10
Then under that it says billing cycle monthly starting on the 11th every month
So what does this mean???
Am I only a plan or something??? Because I am confused how I used 12mb of cell data when I thought I was NOT on a plan, yet it is saying I used 12mb of cellular data???
And it made me worried that I was somehow going to be charged for this data at the end of the month when I never activated any cellular plan so I am confused how my cell data was on and I used 12mb
Basically, I bought this sim card from Republic and put it in my phone and I was going to activate a plan in about a week from now and I want to make sure that this sim card isn’t some how charging me right now when I never picked a plan.
Because it keeps spamming me permissions to access my apps and grant access to them and I wanted to make sure it didn’t somehow accidentally get access to anything because I am confused how i used 12mb of cell data.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I do want service soon and I am going to pay for service but I wanted to make sure in the meantime that its not charging me for stuff I am unaware about.
