Not sure if this means anything, but Sprint has a totally different data usage number than I do, as calculated by my phone. Of course, I'm not sure if the phone can be trusted, but what other way is there to track it, other than at the device side or the network side?

I really don't think there is any other way to track it other than what your device says it uses or what Sprint/T-Mo/Etc. tells you....And really how accurate can it be? The phone may miss some data being passed, but is what the carrier is counting as used data really what you've used? Who/What do you trust?

I use the feature in AVG's widget to have another comparison of how much data I'm using. It seems pretty close to my phone/Sprint's tracker.

AT&T tends to count my data usage less every month than Android says I use. As long as AT&T is equal or less, I don't feel concerned.

Sprint normally comes under or close to my phones report. Verizon however, comes in way under. Verizon often says I've used several hundred mbs less than my phone reports.

I meant to add to my original post that Verizon always comes in under what my device says, as does AT&T. I just checked my Sprint account again and it is dead-on now. Strange.

I wonder if Verizon is significantly compressing data then.

I don't know if it will be any different or accurate than the built android data meter, but at least it will be another point of reference.
