    With the recent announcement about AT&T pulling their unlimited plan in favor of a 2 GB plan, it got me wondering how much data I am going through on my iPad. I have a 3G model but as yet have not activated 3G due to the fact I am using it mostly at home where I have a WiFi network already.

    Is there any ability where I can monitor how much data throughput I use over the course of a day (or week or whatever) on WiFi? Or is that kind of monitoring only possible when actually using the 3G service?

    I tried to do that to see how much data i had used since 4/30 to see if the new change would affect me, but it only measures 3G data. Maybe something on your router could measure it. I know that you can "look" at each device connected through wifi, I'm just not sure whether there is a data counter assigned to each device. i wouldn't be surprised, though.

    Well in my case "home" is basically a university residence hall so I don't have access to the router. :( Was hoping there was just something I missed in the settings but apparently not.
