    hi i have just come from a iphone 4 too the galaxy s2 and i am glad i did however i have noticed a considerable increase in data usage.
    it is fine as i am on a truly unlmited plan .
    however i was wondering if there was a app or via the actual phone maybe some settings to show me exactlly what app is using how much data.

    thanks for any help in this matter

    I think dan wants to know what apps are using up the data, not just how much is being used in general. 3g watchdog, good though it is (I use it on mine) does not report on a per app basis.

    I too would be interested in an app that breaks data usage down to the app level.

    Actually the pro version for 3G watchdog does break down data into apps usage, and as far as I can tell accurate cause there isn't much difference between network (service provider) readings and this.

    Cheers
