What is White-listed Data?



Any data used for calling or texting is referred to as white-listed data. These basic services do technically use data, so the cell data setting needs to stay on in the Settings app for these services to work, but the modicum of data they use does not count toward any data you've purchased. Our app separates data used from calling and texting from data that you've purchased. You do not need to purchase data to use calling and texting.
