    Does anyone have Data Counter Widget working on their Captivate? I installed it about 12 hours ago and it hasn't recorded any data usage yet. As far as I can tell it's set up properly. Am i missing something?

    Are you on Wifi?

    The widget seems to only count going forward from when you installed it. If you're on wifi, there's not been any 3G/Edge data to count.

    I have been on both Wifi and 3g since installing. Still no data tracking since install.

    Has anyone out there tried this widget with success?

    That widget sucks, I had it installed too. 3g Watchdog is what you need and is free.

    down load 3Gwatchdog from the market. It has been working really well for me. Like 3 1/2 songs from pandora were showing almost 7mb. It's a pretty cool widget, you make some choices to configure it, quite easy. you can use the widget or taskbar, or both like me.:)

    are you on at&t?

    go to your contacts on your phone and there is a number you can call "at&t data" or something similar, it will give you an up to the minute count of MB used

    i would only worry about data usage if you are on the $15/200mb plan. Most people do not realize 2gb of data is way more than enough. I thought I used a lot of date but i only used close to 1gb on my Aria last month

    Edit: AT&T also sends you free text messages when you are at 60%, 90%, and 100% usage

    Edit one more time: AT&T does also have a "my wireless" app which allows you to view your account from your phone


    and just as an idea, for this bill cycle (15 days into the cycle) I have used 548mb of data, so if I keep using as much data as I do (and I work at AT&T so I use my phone a lot) ill only hit a little more than 1gb

    Thanks for the suggestions. I have installed 3d Watchdog and it seems to work well.
