    Hi guys, Im a new iPhone user (finally) And I was wondering what is the best App to track my 3G data usage so I dont bust my limit per month.

    Android has 3G watchdog and others ..

    Anything like that for the iPhone in the Appstore ? I dont want to jailbrake it

    Thanks alot guys :)

    Settings -> general -> usage -> cellular usage.

    thx :)
    But is there a way or an app that I can set the date that my data plan resets every month, So that I dont have to go through the settings - General - Usage -Cellular usage, and do a reset from there ?

    It can be easy to forget to reset and after a couple of days dont know how much data I am at for the next month ...

    Take a look at Threshold to see if it meets your needs.

    I think it'd very nice if we could put our data usage (resetting automatically every billing period if we choose so) in the notification center.

    If you upgraded to iOS 5 use the new Reminders app; plus it allows dor setting them to repeat :)

    Could you walk me through how to set up a reminder to alert me when I've used 1.5 GB of data on 3G during my current billing cycle? I go to reminders click (+) and I can type text, but I don't have any idea where to go from here.

    dataman is good and you can see your wifi stuff to. There is a free version but it needs to be in the background

    Depending on your provider, Verizon's official app does that.

    I use Data Usage. It's a bit of a battery hog if you want it running all the time, but it does a great job. You can set thresholds with alerts. It's also universal, so it will run on the iPad and the iPhone.

    Reminders isn't that powerful unfortunately. I was referring to using it to send maybe bi-weekly or tri-weekly notifications from Reminders so you could manually check.
