    So I upgraded from the 250 mb plan to the 3 gb plan after buying my 3rd gen iPad. I just have to get a handle on how much data I use

    I can report that DataUsagePro has been spot on for the last week. The one item I dislike about the program is that it resets the counter every month, instead of every 30 days like my AT&T plan does.

    Any suggestion on a better monitor program?

    I would also like to report that if I place the iPad in the truck away from my free WiFi network, I seem to use about 1 mb a day, even if I just leave it behind the seat or 8 hours. Guess this is just normal communications where the iPad is checking email, gps location, etc..

    Why not just use the cellular usage counter in settings>general>usage>cellular usage? You can reset it when you want.

    DataUsagePro has a live icon that you can configure with percent used, percent left, or project percent that will be used. I even have it as one if the 6 icons on the dock.

    DataUsagePro also let's you see daily usage history, so you will see just how much data is used when running on a 50 mb LTE network ;-

    i don't like the idea of having to pay even more money just to know how much data i used.
