Ok..First yours is a night unlimited plan. An I believe the day limit is 1 GB(not sure). IN other words ..its only between 12 AM & 8 AM that you can browse as much as you can . During the day (i.e) 8 AM to 12 AM , the limit for month is 1 GB...If you exceed that you will be charged which is what the 120, 314, 520 etcmust be. Secondly, about the router or modem being switched on or off - they expect you switch off the modem & then again switch it on , during the change over from Night inlimited to daytime limited mode & vice versa - why its needed i have no clue - maybe the network geeks & other knowledgable people in this forum can tell you

Hmm..If your usage is less than 1 GB then you had better check up at with them about it. Some of it could be the service tax, but i think it would be best if u ask them. Is there anyway you can check your usage online - if so then you can do that. About the router. What I think it basically means is that it should go into off mode after 12:00 AM even if it is for a secondSo , if u switched on at 11:55 PM, switch it off at 12:05 am and switch on & if u switched directly at 12:05 AM, let it beAnd same steps at around 8:00 AM
