    Lookin for a little touch of help / assistance! I am running the new EVO on Sprint, not rooted, and I am looking for an application that can display active (and perhaps historical) network bandwidth usage based on the application(s) utilizing it.

    So far the only one I have manged to come across is "NetMeter" from the market. While this shows active network activity, it does not single out applications.

    Trying to figure out what's whoring out the bandwidth on my phone and how I can fine-tune the problematic applications. As I type this I am looking at ~10min of 3G usage totaling over 15MB so far, and from what I can tell I am not running anything that would require the downloading of said data chunk!

    So yeah, any input, tips, tricks..hints, or leads?

    Thanks in advance!

    Anyone? I thought of this while at work - for those wondering what exactly I mean, I suppose I am looking for something similar to wireshark for the PC in Android form!

    I'm looking for this too, and for the same reason. I went through 706MB in one day without doing much on my phone.

    What apps have you installed? There are some reports of Facebook constantly updating, but I've been running Facebook since I got my Evo and the battery worked fine at first.

    Spare Parts - look under battery history then at network usage.

    *facepalm* I'm only disappointed in myself because I knew it did that a few weeks ago, and thought "oh that's pretty spiffy" and now once I need that information I proceeded to forget about it :( Especially since I still have it installed :rolleyes:

    Thanks!

    Edit -
    Seems the only "hogs" are 0 and UID 10006 but I'm going to keep a tighter watch to see if I can narrow it down to the newly hogging ones. Sorta sad since a perfect example would have been Tuesday night in which I went to bed at ~50% battery and the phone somehow DLd ~250MB and drained the battery to 15% which woke me up with it's beeping, hah
