    Open call to develop a data usage tracking utility

    Advertisement



    So i have Tmobile with unlimited data plan. Not everyone has this luxury. A friend of mine just got charged $100 for going 12mb over her 25mb limit with rogers. This is just silly. So just droppin something in the ol idea bucket.

    A small tool to track how much data you have used for the month. Yahoo go has something like this embedded into the software (tells you at the end of using it how much data it used)

    I think something that can track all data usage would be very beneficial for all BB users without unlimited data. I mean web, BBM, chat apps, radio streaming apps, tether, all things should be tracked.

    Thats all.

    Hopefully something will come from this.
    Thanks in advance

    Re: Open call to develop a data usage tracking utility

    I looked briefly into this idea a little while ago and concluded it wasn't possible for the BlackBerry. Of course, it's possible for an individual application (like Yahoo Go) to track it's own data usage, but I couldn't see any way you could track usage globally across all applications/services.


    Of course, that's not to say it is impossible. But I just couldn't find a way in my quick 15 min look into it.

    Like I said red I have unlimited data. The idea for the app is for the folks with other carriers to track their data so they don't go over

    I also have unlimited data, or email updates from Handango would have been launched a long time ago, possibly to Iraq along with ss4b.You know what I mean. Isn't UDP available from most carriers then??

    Its available from carriers in the U.S. where we (sort of) enjoy free market competition. Up in the Great White North, they see fit to only allow 2 wireless carriers, which allows them to be less competitive.

    Short answer, no UDP in Canada.
