This is a prepaid plan. It has no "overages". When you run out, you run out. Either you add more money to continue service, or don't.
Postpaid "overages" work by billing you when you reach a limit. And continuously do so the more you go over. That means no control over your bill.
It's like gambling a bit. Prepaid forces you to stop, because you have no more money.
Postpaid charges you a fee to "keep playing and you pay it later. You can keep on paying this fee for as much as you want until the company says you've had enough.
That's what Verizon and at&t do with their postpaid plans with data...hit your cap? No problem! $15/GB to keep you going.
I have a tablet with Verizon prepaid service, that completely cuts off my data usage once I've hit a cap unless I choose to buy more data explicitly. With postpaid, it will auto-charge you an additional $15/GB.

let's see if you SEE ANY overages...
"Charging overage fees is a greedy, predatory practice that needs to go," continued Legere. "Starting in May for bills arriving in June - regardless of whether you're on Simple Choice, Simple Starter or an older plan [read: postpaid plans], we're abolishing overages for good. Period."
this $30 "walmart" plan is considered PREPAID.
"General Prepaid Terms: $10 SIM starter kit may be required. Sufficient balance required to use service. Domestic use only; additional charges apply for international use where available. Calls rated on a per-minute basis. Partial minutes/megabytes rounded. Talk at $0.10/min. Data roaming only available for the $50, $60, $70, and $80 monthly plans. Roaming and on-network data allotments differ; 1 GB full-speed plan includes 10 MB roaming; 3 GB and Unlimited full-speed plans include 50 MB roaming; 5 GB full-speed plan and limited 5GB Smartphone Mobile HotSpot feature includes 100 MB roaming. Some plans include specified data speeds. Where indicated, full speeds available up to data allotment; then slowed to up to 2G speeds for balance of service period. Some plan options do not permit use of features after included amounts are depleted. If you transfer your number to another carrier, account will be deactivated and no service will be available. "

An overage is a penalty. The 10 cents a minute is based on your balance. Meaning if you have a $0 balance you won't be charged anything BUT… you won't be able to make a call.
On a postpaid plan if you go over your allotted minutes, you can keep making calls but would be penalized for it by being charged.

the overages are seen only on regular postpaid plans.

|evilkokonut||with T-Mobile eliminating overages, do you think that applies to this plan?|

Many thanks - I was spacing on the nano-sim deal and while I have some of the nano/micro adapters those can be problematic removing sometimes and I'm not a huge fan..

Once you order the kit from them, then you can use the new sim and the activation code provided to activate online, where you'll be able to select this plan.
