Does any one know if there is a mobile data usage meter - like there is for jetstream




When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.

Well you log in with your xtra username and password, if you phone number is linked to that account then it wont show usage for your phone, its only a two second job to do it, there should be a link once you are logged in.

The other way is to use telecoms bill online and under recent activity it will show how much you have spent on mobile data

Telecom do not have a usage meter for their Mobile Jetstream (CDMA1x) and Mobile Broadband (EVDO) services. They do have a usage alert system where you can be sent either a TXT (only to 027) to up to 3 addresses and/or an email (to up 3 addresses) sent to you (your boss, your financial controller etc) when you are getting close to your plan limits. eg 200Mbyte plan will give you alerts at 160MByte, 200Mbyte and 220MByte. Or it can alert you at a specific data volume. eg 123Mbyte, 675Mbyte etc.

Even if you use your Xtra username and password to connect to Mobile Jetstream/Broadband (rather than the default mobile@jamamobile) the usage does not appear on your fixed broadband usage account or meter.

Brad05 is correct, you could use the bill online functionality to check your mobile account. Remember that information for each data sesion appears here a few hours after the event.

Thanks Jama bob,

I located the usage alerts on the t'com site so I've signed up and will see how it goes.
