Hi guys I have just set up and started to use broadband via a telecom mobilise modem on my laptop. It all works OK but there doesn't appear to be anywhere on Telecoms site where I can check the amount of data useage that I have clocked up. Telecoms store outlets don't seem to know and neither does the help desk ..... does anyone have any suggestions short of writing a daily diary each time I log on?

The Sierra Wireless "Watcher" program has a Total Data Byte counter which you can reset at the end of your billing cycle.  That is how I keep track of my usage.

There is also a Usage Alert service with 3 different thresholds which are selectable to whatever you like.  If you are on a plan with a fixed cap, then I suggest setting them to 80%, 100% and 120% of your cap.  Otherwise, set them to particular MB levels, if like me you are on the Flexi plan.

Not quite as good as a Usage Meter I agree, but it works for me Smile
