Default Do You Need to Track Your Data Usage?

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.macworld.com/article/157756/2011/02/iphone_data_tracking.html?lsrc=rss_main' target='_blank'>http://www.macworld.com/article/157...l?lsrc=rss_main</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"When users had unlimited data there was no reason to be concerned with how or where that data was being consumed. Since AT&amp;T dropped unlimited data in favor of tiered data caps, though, users have struggled to understand data usage, and now AT&amp;T is faced with a law suit accusing it of systematically overcharging customers."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1297444993.usr105634.jpg" style="margin-left: 50px; margin-right: 50px;" /></p><p>DataMan is what the author suggests, and it sells for $1.99 USD in the iTunes store [<a href="http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/click?id=VoxLcfp5Si4&amp;subid=&amp;offerid=177776.1&amp;type=10&amp;tmpid=3909&amp;RD_PARM1=http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/dataman-real-time-data-usage/id393282873?mt=8" target="_blank">affiliate link</a>]. You can also get the free lite version [<a href="http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/dataman-lite-real-time-data/id404513413?mt=8" target="_blank">link</a>] if you just want to test it out before getting the full version that allows more functionality and "more precise" monitoring, as you can see in the image above. I still have the unlimited data plan so I don't worry too much about it, but it appears this app can really break it down for you if you need specifics. What do you use to track your data?</p>
