    Okay, seriously dude. Get yourself JuiceDefender, or an app which is capable of turning off your data connection when you're not using it. Use wifi.

    What apps are you using which use your internet connection? 2gig is a LOT of data! Are you using the satnav constantly, or something? Also, I'm pretty sure your fair usage will only be 1gb not 2gb, if I know that tariff correctly, without an extra add-on.

    If the phone is faulty, you should be able to get an exchange within 28 days. Download a data tracker app and see what happens when your allowance refreshes.

    Send me a PM if you want more info. Take care,

    Okay. You need to check and monitor the apps you have running. Like I said, go and get an app called Juice Defender and go from there.

    Is another great traffic usage monitor. I like that there is a icon with a graph that shows how much of your data allowance used, and also changes colour.

    Use Task manager to make sure you flick unused programs off the cpu.

    Have you been using the virtual walkie talkie alot? It can use 8Kps which adds up over a few hours.

    Hi, I just bought ZTE Racer and I can't find the folowing aplications on my phone: FMRadio, JAVA ME Apps, RoadSync Calendar and RoadSync Mail. I called my operator's tech support and they said that there is no FMRadio aplication for ZTE Racer, but I see it in the User Manual and also on reviewes on internet. Can somebody tell me what is wrong and is there a way for me to get FMRadio on my ZTE Racer???

    Thanks

    It does have an FM radio. You need to make sure your headphones are plugged in as it uses them for an aerial. The applications including the radio are on the applications page which you get to via the Home screen by tapping on the box of boxes at the bottom of the screen.

    I know I had to use the headphones (the previous phone i had was with fm radio) and I know how to get to the aplications page, it's just that the icons for the aplications I mentioned are missing. I tried the look for the same problem on the internet and I found some other guys with the same problem but there was no solution. Also like I mentioned the tech support for my mobile operator said that ZTE Racer had no FM Radio ??? I don't know what could be the problem, I tried to reset to factory settings and also the icons for FM Radio, Java and etc. were missing.
