    recently, i have noticed that my apps, mostly games, are sending me updates like what is new, play today and win this amount of coins, etc..

    my question: how can apps send me updates without my phone having connected to Wifi and Data Plan?

    You either have a data connection and don't realize it or it's stuff that's programmed into the game already and only sounds like it's some sort of update.

    i dont have ANY data connection, i only pay $20 a month to sim card provider, there is no data, and they dont charge me excess either.

    so how come these apps send me updates?

    They're likely "time bombs" that were pushed the last time you had a data connection, programmed to pop the notification at a certain time.

    The alerts are likely built into the Apps and don't need a data connection. If you click the links nothing will happen, or the Play Store will fail to open. I'd still say there is an issue with that App, as it shouldn't be spamming you like that.

    Do you actually have those apps? It looks more like an ad service pushing notifications. If you're on a recent version of Android, you should be able to long-press the notifications. Tap the "App info" button that pops up. It will take you to the device settings page for the app that's sending you the notifications. Uninstall it or uncheck "Show notifications" and the notifications should stop.
