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?

Un-carrier:  un-derhanded, un-fair, un-ethical, un-trustworthy, un-scrupulous, un-accurate.

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.

internet speed meter lite

 

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.

    • Strange business model that they keep around all these pricing plans. 1000s of plans per carrier is reportedly not uncommon.  Training customer support must be a nightmare. Even MVNOs have legacy plans. A downside of their contract mentality I guess. Best to change contracts during a recession. But then all carriers try to squeeze out legacy plan benefits as they grow old.  
    • Everything "Uncarrier" is becoming "Carrier" again. Because of the Credit Limit that T-Mobile put on our account for no reason at all (and wouldn't change/update the last time I checked all the way up to the CEO), I don't plan on buying/upgrading our iPhones through T-Mobile. I'm going through Apple directly. Looks like I'll be going through Google and Samsung directly for our other lines for upgrades. Also, we're staying on Sprint Max given the ridiculous pricing for Go5G Plus. On Sprint Max, we currently pay for our Plan: $260 for 7 Voice Lines $25 for two Wearable Lines. (One is $10/Month. The other is $15/Month because the AutoPay discount only applies up to 8 lines.) Total: $285/Month vs. Go5G Plus (Per the Broadband Facts "nutrition label" on the T-Mobile Website): https://www.t-mobile.com/commerce/cell-phone-plans $360 - ($5 AutoPay Discount x 7 Voice Lines) = $325 The Watch Plans show as either $12/Month or $15/Month: https://www.t-mobile.com/cell-phone-plans/affordable-data-plans/smartwatches So this is about the same for the wearables as what we're paying now. Overall, it's quite more than we're paying now to switch plans. Ridiculous....
    • Welcome back! That's similar to my best (1250ish). A few people have broken 2000 on good sites. 
    • Lots of new multi-carrier nodes popping up in Bushwick. Crown Castle Fiber node at Ridgewood & Palmetto:   Crown Castle Solutions node at Irving & Jefferson:   Crown Castle Solutions node at Wilson & Noll:  
    • I’m surprised they’re running a 5x5 Band 66 carrier still. In NYC T-Mobile has 25x25 AWS and they’re running 20x20 Band 66 and 5x5 n66 (in testing). Presumably when n66 commercially launches they’ll drop Band 66 down to 15x15 and go straight for a 10x10 n66 carrier like they did with n25.
