3G Watchdog is what most people use. I have unlimited MediaNet for $10 bucks a month,so I don't really worry about it.

When Android 4.0 comes to the phone, it will have this functionality built in.

I think dan wants to know what apps are using up the data, not just how much is being used in general. 3g watchdog, good though it is (I use it on mine) does not report on a per app basis.

I too would be interested in an app that breaks data usage down to the app level.

Actually the pro version for 3G watchdog does break down data into apps usage, and as far as I can tell accurate cause there isn't much difference between network (service provider) readings and this.
