Download the free version Data manager and install it, it keeps track of data usage. The other point is to configure wifi for home and if you place of business allows it, the wifi therer

In addition, know that you will get text message alerts when you are close to going over.

Re: HTC INSPIRE

I would assume that you're on the 200MB data plan...is that correct?

Hey, don't worry about it too much. You might as well use the phone for some things data-related. Smiley Happy

25 dollar plan is 2GB, the 200MB plan is 15.00. If you are paying 25.00 you have 2GB of data available

2GB of data is more than enough to cover light to moderate data usage. You don't have to worry constantly about going over unless you stream music or video directly from your phone.

Re: HTC INSPIRE

At $25 you have the 2 Gb plan.  This is a lot for normal browsing, downloading and updating apps, and what not.  As stated earlier, you might have a problem if you stream a lot of music or videos.  If you have the ability to login online you can login on your phone and check your data usage.  If you do a lot of streaming use WiFi as much as possible.  My wife and I decided to test how much data we used over the course of 5 day increments.  After 5 months of doing this we come to the conclusion I needed the 2GB plan (do not have a WiFi hotspot at work) and she only needed the 200Mb plan.
