You could use an app like 3G Watchdog to keep an eye on your data usage,

Would this information not also be viewable on your T-mobile account at https://www.t-mobile.co.uk/service/your-account/mtm-user-login-dispatch/?

T-Mobile have a 3gb allowance for Android phones so you would have to use it a lot to go over that. Even if you did they wouldn't charge extra, just restrict your usage until the end of the month I believe.

I also use 3G Watchdog but more out of curiosity than worrying about going over.

3G Watchdog is definately the way to go, especially if you are on a network relunctant to tell you how much you've used *cough* 3 *cough*

Logging into mythree on my phone and checking my usage works fine for me... I believe its all changed since they stopped using the word unlimited, they now show you how much you have left.

I think the app only tells you how much data you use if you have data added to your talk plan. I'm on a Panther plan with 'unlimited' data (750Mb FUP) included and the Your Orange app only shows call time and MMS.

I have data in my plan and that shows quite accurately. I suppose any plan would only show what you are entitled to.

I find that "Stats" is a very good app, i just get it to reset each month.

Keeps track of number of text message and phone calls etc as well.

See if you really are getting value from your monthly contract.
