    I don't have an unlimited data plan, so I was quite frustrated to see that my G1 was consuming lots of megabytes in the background (also draining battery too fast).

    To solve this problem, I wrote this iptables front-end to block undesired applications from accessing the GRPS/3G network (white-list based), while keeping unrestricted access to the Wifi network.
    The goal is to create an iptables front-end, but currently this is the only feature available.

    IMPORTANT: Root access required - this was tested on a G1 with JFv1.50

    Project home:
    http://code.google.com/p/droidwall/

    I didn't publish it on market yet, but you can download the ".apk" from the site and install it.
    After installing, press menu an click Help for a (very) brief explanation on how to use it.

    I hope this will help other people.

    How does one see how much bandwidth their phone is using?

    I use a nice application called NetSentry to monitor bandwidth usage (its available on Market).
