The data widget measures data on individual devices and can not work as is with the share everything plans coming out tomorrow. You can still have a shortcut that takes you to my verizon mobile and you can see te data usage for the account.

And all people are your account are automatically enrolled in the notification system when the account hits 50%, 75%, 90% and 100% Of the shared data plan.

Verizon has built the system to let everyone know when they are getting close to going over.

For an overage fee to be assesse...
