How do I schedule my downloads during Bonus Bytes window on a Mac device?

I've already used 1G of data in less than 2 hours attempting to find a download scheduler. This is very frustrating!

Re: How do I schedule my downloads during Bonus Bytes window on a Mac device?

Hello Vic,

Welcome to the community and thanks for posting! Unfortunately Mac's are unable to schedule download updates to a particular time. However there is a way around this to a certain extent. Take a look at these two links for help with this. What ever time you manually check for updates, your system will save and always check at this time. So you would have to stay up to a time when your bonus period is in affect, but after you would no longer have to.

Other than attempting this, there is not an application that you can download which will allow you to do this. Let me know if this helps.

Thank you,
