General My Verizon Data Use Widget on the V20

You must have the Verizon Info app installed, and then look in Widgets for it.
I also enjoy that feature. I suspicion it is the 1st one.

Don't recall which of these two apps it is, download both, and then the Widget should appear in "Widgets"

I have the My Verizon app. The widget they provide now is just a link to the actual app. The Infozone app widget is not what I'm looking for either. Thanks anyway though.

I swear It was on my device when I got it.

Attached is a photo with my current My Verizon widget. I tried activating it and it doesn't work. Any suggestions? December 07, 2016 at 0805AM.png

Pretty sure this is the widget you are looking for, the left one, the right one is my battery Circle widget

In Settings/Applications

it is called "My Info Zone"

yet, in the App Drawer, all I see there is the "My Verizon " icon which opens the app itself.
The Info Zone widget, if touched, does indeed open the full app up.

and here you can easily see that the Info Zone is a separate part of that app as a "Widget"
that is the Widgets screen I am showing here.

Yes it is. I can't seem to find that one. The only one available on the My Verizon app offers is the one in my picture.

OH so when you add it to the screen it looks like just the VZ logo - that's probably right.

I remember you have to open it once - let it gather your info and etc and you might even have to log into your account with VZ though it for the first time. I don't remember. but yes you have to open it before it will show the little data graph for an icon.

OH and it's also about 4-8 hours out of sync if you rely on just the graph but it's a nice reminder.

Thank you for the info!

If i get worried about being at the edge, i click on the icon and open the app up, that is "real time".

I once pushed it to within 10 mB of going over the edge.... I had about 4 hours left on my cycle to reset it, so I just opened up my Kindle and read a book.... cheaper than upgrading the data plan.

The data use widget just decided to start working this morning almost 2 weeks after I bought the phone.
