Hi the usage meter is delayed by at least 4 days. How am I supposed to know how much I can use on the final day of the monthly cycle? What do you guys do apart from guessing?




Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

How do you know it's delayed? I presumed it was accurate. I use 3G Watchdog app on my Galaxy S I9000 to keep track but it relies on an accurate starting point since it works on calendar month against Vodafone on the 20th.

Definitely at least a 4 day delay on my iPhone plan. Streamed a 2 hour show on Sunday. Didn't tether again. Meter shows 700mb reduction on Thursday.

One more query... Been sent an 80percent usage warning. Do they send also at 90 percent and at 100percent?

Cheers

I've never used my limit, just been on the addon for 2 months. First time I've received a message about my usage.

Anyone from vf? If I overuse data on final day because of delay in meter will It just roll over without consequence or will meter suddenly update and charge you?

The sms alerts go out at %80 and %100

If you go over the data bundle you will be charged for this
