In one sentence: Boosts are proactive while Auto Boosts are reactive.
What are Boosts?
We added the Boost feature to eliminate bill shocks and to give you further data top-up options so that you never run out of data.
You can top up your data manually by using a Boost. Just go to your Circles.Life app > Home > Boost and select the amount you want to Boost your plan with. The amount will be instantly charged on your credit/debit card on file.
If you're afraid you won't be on it all the time, you can turn on Auto-Boosts!
What are Auto-Boosts?
With our Auto-Boost feature, your Data will be automatically boosted by 200 MB only to keep you online when you are about to run out. You will be charged $2 for each Auto-Boost added to your plan.
The first 25 Auto-Boosts are charged on a month-end basis, however, 26 onwards, you may be charged directly from the credit/debit card you have on file.
You can always deactivate Auto-Boost in Circles.Life: head over to Circles.Life app > Home > Profile > Settings > Boost > Use Auto Boost and toggle left to turn off!
