Has anyone had a bill yet to see how much data your phone is pulling? I changed my plan recently so I can't track it online. The reason I am asking is because I am trying to figure what I need to turn off on my phone so I don't go over my plan.
1) 'Rogers My Account' is a free market app that enables you to access your Rogers account to view your account balance, data usage, etc.
2) 'Network Traffic Counter' is another free market app that tracks your wifi and network data usage, you can customized options to show 1 day, 7 days etc.
I'm sure there are others, but that would be a good way to see how much your using and if you need to disable any app on your phone.
My wifi usage was 20x that amount so if you're smart you won't have any problems with the 3G data.
How do you "turn off" anything on your N1?? I have 500MB on my plan and although I have not received a bill as of yet, I just received a text msg stating I had gone over. I'm not sure how much my bil will be now, but I'd definitely like to know how to manage my plan better.
From the settings page, I went to the accounts and sync settings. I don't use gmail as my primary email, so I turned that stuff off.
Also from the settings page, I looked at the Applications settings. This shows the "running services" and I turn off the ones I am not interested in as well.
Then I installed Advanced Task Killer, this little app allows you to see all of the applications that are currently running and allows you to "kill" the selected apps.
You also have the option of turning off the Background data, by going to Settings, Account & Sync Settings, Background data, but this may make having the phone a smartphone a little irrelevant...
Not sure whether these will help, but will see. If any one has an other suggestions/recommendations, I would be happy to hear them.
