App to track Minutes/Text Usage

I know that you can track your minutes usage under the settings screen on the iPhone but it doesn't account for night & weekend minutes or texts.

Does anyone know of an app that can track your usage with more detail? I have searched everywhere but have been unable to find one.

App store apps would have no access to the phone/sms app to do what your asking, and its been asked a few times before.

And make the site a link on your home screen. Boom, better than any app as they can adjust the page in the future without you ever having to download updates.

In fact, that link is built into the Settings on the iPhone.

Just grab the free ATT app off the app store. It tells you all of it, and allows you to easily change your plan and extras associated with it.

Use Air Minutes

http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/air-m...460818393?mt=8

It tracks day, night & weekend minutes without logging into the account website. It works with all carriers. It's on sale for $0.99.

In UK, o2 has an app which tells you how many minutes/texts/data you've used and how much you have left. As well as your last bill amount. I am pretty sure other networks here have that, too (Orange, Voda, etc.)
