    I need help with mobil broadband usage. I need an app that can keep track of my usage in something close to real time. The only way I have to seee how much I have used is by asking Verizon via phone/web. These numbers that they give me are dated and DAYS! OLD!!!!! I need something a lot closer to accual usage in a realtime type setting. Any idea folks?....Need a little help went to 5.6 Gig last month cost me an extra 40.00 that I could have spent on a app watching what I was doing.

    Dial #3282. (DATA) It sends you a text of your phone data usage and your Mobile Hotspot data usage. It's usually only a few hours behind from the actual data usage.

    If you don't mind me asking, what were you doing that caused you to use over 5 GB of data on mobile broadband?

    I consider myself a heavy internet user and I don't go anywhere near the 5 GB limit. We have two computers on the connection almost 24 hours per day, play a few online games, download application updates, and just generally browse and use the internet.

    Are you torrenting or something?

    You may consider yourself a heavy user but you most certainly are not. If you think 5GB a month is a lot. It would be a lot just to use on the phone alone.
    5GB a month comes to roughly 150 megs per day. When used as a Wifi Hotspot that pitiful amount goes very quickly. NO videos, no software downloads besides updates, no audio streaming.

    Just a desktop and a laptop and usage has to be rationed off to make it last the month.

    If some one were downloading music and videos they would easily use up this 5GB in less than week.

    Just so you know.

    get a real internet connection? BTW I can crack 3 gigs in a month on my phone alone (sprint phone without tethering). I am truly a heavy user, and this counts some usage on my home wifi (that doesn't count towards the 3ish gigs I have used).

    I use the hell outta my phone, ohh and sprint may not have built in tethering, but the data usage is up to date when I check it.
