I have been enjoying the Curve for a week now (my first BB) and I love it. However, I would like to know if BBs have either a data counter or SMS counter. I have done some research on this and can’t find an answer. If anyone has some info, I would appreciate it.
PS- These forums are invaluable—thanks for all the info!!

Welcome to CrackBerry.com!
I've not seen any options for this. But, you could log into your BIS account (service provider's website) and go to minutes /data used section...

i know this is a late reply, but i stumbled upon this thread when searching for an answer on the same thing...
just in case anybody's still wondering, YES there is a message counter...
options > status > [menu key] > database sizes > [scroll down to SMS Messages] the number on the left is the combined total of sent/received, the right is the amount of memory they're taking up...
this only counts messages currently stored on the phone, but its in there.

I previously had a 200 sms package from at&t. I could dial *DATA# and it would generate a (free) reply from them indicating my use during the current billing cycle. Perhaps all carriers offer some version of this service ?

I know for t-mobile you can hit #674# and then send and it will tell you how many text messages were used during that billing cycle. I know AT&T has a similar service too. You might have to call your service provider and see if they have that and what's the code.Ray
