Check your downloads before you wreck your downloads with Data Used
The downturn in the economy have us all looking to cut corners. I’m spending way too much on my data plan, but am afraid to downgrade from the unlimited option, because, well, we know how much it costs when you go over. You mobile carrier stabs you through the wallet. Basically, I’ll pay a vig of $30 a month just to ensure I don’t end up with a $300 bill randomly one month. I feel like I’m being shaken down. With Data Used, by Mesh Studios, which is now free in the app store, you input your billing date, your plan and it will give you the numbers for how many bites and bits you’ve consumed. The key is dialing *3228# and AT&T will shoot you a text with your billing date, current totals – all that stuff. At this point, I’m using more data than the $15 AT&T Plan, but less than the $25 AT&T sells for 2GB. In essence, I’m paying an extra $60 a year for the extra data I’m not using – but I think that’s worth it for peace of mind. Data Used is currently free – but only for a limited time, so download now.
