    Is there an App that shows what each app you run uses for data while running in the background?

    You would think that this would be something RIM included. App Manager shows how long you've used it and how much memory and cpu useage. Why not include Data Useage as well?

    Reason I ask is I had the Curve with no 3G and no WiFi capabilities and was using around 100-150mb of data per month with moderate-heavy usage of web browsing and twitter, and gmaps and emails.

    I had used 60mb of data from 12/08-12/20 with the curve. Got the Torch and in a week racked up 120mb of Data use! And I was using WiFi at least half the time. Something isn't right....

    Additionally this is how my Data was shown to me on previous bills

    Why the change? I called ATT and they have set up an agreement to monitor and check the bill once it comes out. Also talked to a Tech guy and he told me to exchange the phone as it seems like its the device. Nobody at ATT knows why it went from Data/Data Transfer to wap.cingular/media net. You would think they would know about their own product...
