  • To (UTC): End date of displayed account billing information.

To filter the information displayed in the View Billing page:

  1. Click the Chart Type menu and select the chart you want to view.
  2. Select the Time Period you want displayed in the chart.
  3. Set a start and end date displayed billing information using the From (UTC) and To (UTC) drop-down menus.

Note: Ensure you click Update Graph to load the selected chart type.

Device States

The Device States chart shows the total number of devices in your account over the selected period of time. This chart categorizes your devices as:

  • Provisioned: Reachable through the Aeris network services and can transmit data. Transmitted data is charged at an overage rate. Provisioned SIMS are considered Active.
  • Billed: Accessible through the Aeris network services and charged on a monthly basis. Billed SIMS are considered Active.
  • Suspended: Reachable through the Aeris network services and can transmit data. Transmitted data is charged at an overage rate. Suspended SIMS are typically considered Active.
  • Cancelled: Cannot be reached through the Aeris network services or transmit data. You cannot edit SIMs that are in a Cancelled state.

The legend beneath the chart indicates which line colors map to each type of device.

To view information about your device states at a given point in time, hover your cursor over the data point you want to view. A small window appears with more detailed information.

Total Bill

The Total Bill chart shows the amount your account was billed over the selected time period alongside the number of billed devices in your account. Charges are grouped in the following categories:

  • Data: Cost of consumed data that exceeded your plan.
  • SMS Charges: Cost of SMS used beyond the limits of your plan.
  • Voice Charges: Cost of Voice used beyond the limits of your plan.
