    Default Data usage (any way to monitor?)

    Hey CB community.

    I've been using the forums ever since I got my z10, and it is a fantastic site. The CB10 app is probably one of my most used apps.

    That being said, I realize the z10 uses a lot more data then my previous 9900 did, but I don't go crazy on the Internet or download a lot of stuff. I spend most of my time on wifi and I still managed to use almost 400 mb today alone.

    Is there any way to tell which apps are using data other than when I'm using them.

    My drop box and box account are both set to not sync over cellular network, but when ever I go into them it says "Last sync 7 minutes ago " or something like that. Are these programs still syncing?

    Any other input is appreciated.

    uh, i came across a similar thread on CB, some are saying that there aren't any apps (for now) to keep a tab on this. However, if you are on a carrier such as Rogers, on the MyAccount app or online you can monitor all your usage, just create the account. I suspect most carriers should have such a system in place.

    Id like to know the answer to this as well. Does you carrier have a "data used" feature?

    I am with Telus and their app shows you your usage statistics. Can't speak for other carriers though.

    I am with bell and I can check to see how much data I used but can't seem to find out what app is using all the data. Hopefully we get some kind of app soon that monitors this.

    Thanks for the quick replies

    How do you know if your carrier has an app or not?

    Telus has one too. If I remember correctly it comes pre-loaded and allows you to view minutes and data used. I'm at .12 after 1 week with Z10. Wifi is my savior.

    No open frames. Is there any way to see what is running in the background?

    Data Usage Counter app also tracks data usage for daily, weekly, monthly and unlimited data usage cycles,
