Data usage

Anonymous
Not applicable

Hiya, I've been using my new Samsung Galaxy SII for just over a month now, and today I had a warning that I was close to my data allowance running out, I never even got anywhere near my limit with my blackberry, so I went onto MyO2 to see what I had been using it on, but I can't seem to find specifically a way of seeing what is using up my usage, it just tells me what I've used so far this month. I've turned on wifi now as I've just read you can use wifi for free, so it's now connected to my sky internet, but this will obviously only work when I'm in my house, is there a way I can see what's been eating up my usage so I can try and cut down?

Thanks for your help

You could try something like Network Usage or Traffic Monitor from Google Play, which are free.

Another way of cutting down your usage is to turn off 'Mobile Data' - you can do this from the drop down bar for the Notifications at the top.

Also, incase you didn't know - if you go over your usage o2 will not charge you any extra. You will receive a text once you've hit 100% and then after that the speed you receive will be slowed down without costing you any extra until your next bill date

Don't forget a Blackberry compresses data, so similar use on another phone will have a higher data usage figure.
