The message is sent in the same fashion as the data request you can make from your phone, *DATA#. My point is that even as a low data user, the fact that they sent me a message to warn me of approaching the 5gb limit really shows how tenacious they are and that they are targeting anyone on a data plan. The warning message just stated that i will be charged .05 for every 100mb over. At&t contract snippet below.

A voice plan is not required with DataConnect plans.

We may, at our discretion, suspend your account if we believe your data usage is excessive, unusual or is better suited to another rate plan. If you are on a data plan that does not include a monthly MB/GB allowance and additional data usage rates, you agree that AT&T has the right to impose additional charges if you use more than 5 GB in a month; provided that, prior to the imposition of any additional charges, AT&T shall provide you with notice and you shall have the right to terminate your Data Service.
