Sample SMS status notification
If the user sends any of the UNLI commands to 211 while the
sunscription is active, he will receive an SMS that indicates the
end date and time of the UNLI plan. So you can also use the
command as a status check. For example, sending the command
UNLI 1200 to 211 while a subscription is in effect could return
the following status message:

command at the bottom of the screen.
Once again, make sure you’re connected to the SMART
data network when you do this (i.e. you’re using GPRS or
3G). This page won’t display when you’re connected
