    You can use the myATT wireless app to log in and check from your phone or from your phone dialer do *#3282# send (but this doesn't always work for me).

    To monitor your usage try 3g watch dog app or net counter

    *3282# works for me every time I try to use it unless I have no signal.

    It works every 4 out of 10 times for me. I do *3282# and The error code I get is: unknown request, please try again

    Sorry I didn't mean to put *# in my original post, bad editing on my part

    i know right i was like um my name is green then saw guide next to it and thought i was being "watched" lol, i spend a lot of time on here anyway might as well try to be usefu


    and back on topic i have been trying to use this *3282# feature instead of the myatt app to see if it might work on a regular basis and now i might get only 2 failed attempts so i dont have any idea why its hit or miss for me :thinking:

    I really dont have any issues with it. the only time it doesnt work is if I have completely no signal, which really only ever happens in the metal walls of a bathroom stall. TMI, I know.

    I have this app called android booster which serves as a task killer, data tracker, and app deleter it's pretty awesome. You can set how much data you want it to track i keep mine at 1 gig so I know I'm not going over.

    3G Watchdog is great. I have the widget on my home screen.
    There may be times where it and AT&T haven't quite synced up, but it is never so far off I'm in any danger of accidentally going over.

    I'm not on att, so i can't use att resources for data.
    And I'm a big fan of 3g watchdog, tho i only have the free version.
    Anyone have an alternative app for us to check out?
