    So, the other day my Phone alerted me that I was nearing my data limit. I was at 2Gigs and my limit is set for 3Gigs. That being said, I called boost and they told me I do not have a data limit. So, my question is, how do I disable that? The options to set a data limit is greyed out and I tried turning on the Mobile Network, but it is greyed out as well.

    Any Ideas. I am rooted, so hopefully I can turn that thing off

    I moved this thread into 'all things root' since the phone is rooted, and if anyone can figure out how to accomplish this, it would be the rooting wizards of this forum.:)

    You do not have to worry about this since boost has unlimited everything.

    If I understand right, the OP is aware that Boost is unlimited, but finds the data notification annoying, so is hoping to find a way to disable it.

    if you have titanium backup cant you just remove the file that deals with this? I remove it from every flash i do but use wifi a lot so never hit that mark. The only downfall i noticed is if you pick it in settings after removing it it FC

    I have used Titanium Backup a few times, and I figured out how to removed apps/files, but I don't know what file to remove. I attempted to filter the files TB give me with "usage" and "monitor" and cant seem to figure it out. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

    If I remember correctly there should be an option to turn it off... If not you can also set the warning levels to EXTREMELY high so it will never annoy you.
    @The people talking about boost being "Unlimited Everything", that's not true in the case of the EVO Design 4G. The 3G data is capped @ 2.0GB, the 4G is unlimited.
