    Is there a way to track what application is using how much data ??

    It seems like there are some applications running in the background and sucking all my data. I want to know what are these applications or anything that is using my data .. Thanks

    Try 3G Watchdog. Or use AT&T's own myWireless app.

    I have tried 2 of these programs. First the 3g watchdog and I am now using Onavo lite. Neither of them ever showed me using any data? I have no idea why it isn't working. Anyone have a program they are using that works good? Thanks!
    PS - I know I am using data because I use my phone a lot off of wifi. I only have the 200 MB plan and I like to make sure I don't come close to going over.

    Have you tried the one suggested in the post above yours?

    You can find it in the market if you don't want to use AppBrain.

    I use "My Data Manager Free". It not only keeps track of how much data is being used per billing cycle, but how much each app is using too.
