    i know there are a bunch of 3g monitoring apps out there but has anyone tried a bunch and figured out which is the best?

    and is there a good app that can keep track of outgoing phone calls between specific times ie 6am and 6pm on weekdays, or keep track of long distance by ignoring calls made to certain area codes?

    I find 3G Watchdog and Call Meter NG to be particularly good.

    yeah i tired call meter ng, but i need something that can track only my outgoing calls only on weekdays, and only between 6am and 6pm. and another function to track only outgoing long distance calls. basically someone needs to create an app that logs calls with the following options:

    free incoming
    free evenings and weekends, start/end time?
    exclude the following area codes
    exclude the the following numbers

    that would all people to track only billable calls on pretty much every possible billing plan permutation. free incoming, free evenings and weekends, fab/fav/my five, etc..

    throw in outgoing/incoming text count too

    Since Call Meter NG is the closest I've seen to what you want, you could try emailing the author with your feature requests to get it the rest of the way there.

    How about TrafficCounter? I can't give you any link but its author is Carl Hopf. I think it meets what you look for.
    Oh no, except for this: "keep track of outgoing phone calls between specific times ie 6am and 6pm on weekdays"
    Give it a go!

    Thanks for recommending droidstats nik3t. I got this app because of this thread and I love all the different criteria and how you can exclude people and times from counting toward your minutes allotment. It's very easy to set up. I wonder how accurate it is?

    It's as accurate as it gets. The widget though sometimes needs to be clicked so it opens the app and "analyses events" and then it updates. Not a big deal imo.

    Can any of these tell you which apps or processes are using 3G?
