    I need a good app that measures the sent and recieved 3G data.

    I have an iP4 so retina support would be a plus. It doesn't need to be freeware.

    Which is the best app for this? All I know of is download meter.

    Thanks!

    if you use Att you can just call *3282#send and it will text you your data usage from your billing cycle.

    I'm not from the US and the built in data counter has to be manually reset every month which I always forget. I have not jailbroken my phone. Will look into iData..

    Because everyone lives where you live and has the exact same App Store contents.

    So the international app store is different from the US app store? This is news to me. Thanks for the info. Anyway, looks like the OP lives where the app store is the same as mine. ;)

    Wait, the OP isn't from the US. So I guess there must be a different app store for each country.

    Look at the two I mentioned in "my" app store. They both do what you need.

    That information is a few days delayed.

    *3282# spells *DATA# incase anyone was wondering.

    If the App Store apps can not do what you are asking, just set up a calendar event to remind you to reset the usage meter in settings.

    It seems Download Meter looks best and is most advanced app.

    Doing a little shameless self-advertising are you? Would appreciate it if next time you would at least try to acknowledge that you were the dev of the app you recommended.
