    Anyone know of a widget that tracks data usage? I use droid stats for my phone, but it doesnt seem to function to nicely on the tablet. Its on the screen, but doesnt count down as I use data.

    Would prefer something small like 1x1 with data remaining on it.

    Any ideas / sugestions?

    Tx guys...

    The is no (obvious) menu option to show this. However, Android does track certain usage stats internally (e.g., since last boot, since forever, …) You may be able to get to some of those with apps or widget that show internal variables and hidden menus. I like Minimalistic Text. Create a widget and in the options, select Start another activity, Select an activity or a shortcut and search through the many activities (some open test menus or status screens). I’m not sure if you’ll get to 3G usage this way.

    P.S. Use at your own risk! I just saw that this gives you access to a Factory Rest option, which does NOT ask for conformation!
