WASHINGTON ó Users of cellphones and other wireless devices who are nearing their monthly limit for voice, text or data services will receive alerts when they are in danger of being charged extra, under an agreement reached by carriers and the Federal Communications Commission.

The agreement, which is to be announced Monday, brings together an industry and a regulator that have fought bitterly this year over the F.C.C.ís attempts to police Internet service providers and over the commissionís review of wireless company mergers. The agreement will begin within a year.
