    I started off with NetSentry and have just DLed 3G Watchdog.

    What are peoples experience with both?

    What are the differences?

    Which is best? :D



    Stupid Orange and their stupid 500mb limit and me stupidly worrying about it... *mumblegrumble*

    3g watchdog was way too inaccurate for me.

    i am currently using netsentry.

    Just a quick update since I didn't find any other posts related to this topic - I just completed 1 billing cycle with 3g watchdog and it was ~9% lower than what AT&T was reporting. That's not close enough to be effective for an app like this IMO.

    Does AT&T counts the data traffic in 1Bytes steps?

    My provider counts in 100KB steps.
    So I setting 3G WatchDog to counts also in 100KB steps.

    with these type of apps you need to be starting the app at the same hour your new billing cycle starts or it will always be off. which is probably not the 1st.
