iPhone widget to show data used?

Are there any plans to develop a widget for iPhone that will show how much data is being used for a given month? I'm coming from Verizon where they had this and it was very convenient and a great feature to easily check to see what you were at for data used that month. It worked with the Verizon mobile app and I'm assuming this widget for AT&T would work with their app.

Hello @jeffpkohl!


I understand the need for an application which keeps track of data usage; I also like to monitor any data I used with my phone, as well. I would be more than happy to give you more information about this!


To check your data usage, you can text *DATA# to obtain an accurate assessment of data consumed in this billing period. You can also go to Settings > Cellular. This will show individual applications, and the amount of data being used by said applications. You can also reset it at the beginning of your billing cycle to keep a more up-to-date measurement.


If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us again!

Or open your My ATT app.  Data usage is one of the primary tabs on the app.  

Ios doesn't do widgets (not as widgets are understood).  iOS does notifications.  Android does widgets.  Android also does notifications.

@jeffpkohl I like to do the  *DATA# then I have a history of what it was compared to the last time I checked.
