    One thing I find absolutely ridiculous is the iPhone clocks up call usage, but you can't distinguish between outgoing and incoming calls.

    Also, there is no SMS usage tracking.

    How the hell am I suppose to easily keep track of my free minutes and texts?

    I guess this is just another way of making it easier to overspend on your contract…that pisses me off big time :mad:

    Use O2 online bill management it tells you your minutes used and txts!

    I am not saying its a great solution but its all you have!

    I am aware of that. Your right it isn't a great solution. It would be very easy for Apple to implement correct logging on the iPhone.

    I am disappointed.

    Bookmark the usage page on Safari on your iPhone, then just check it when you want to know. :)

    I guess its because in the States, incoming calls deduct from your monthly allowance. Apple should fix this to reflect how its different here.

    (regarding O2 billing)

    sparkyms: I get some strange results when I check my billing on the O2 website …

    It says I have 6:40 minutes left and 7 texts! I haven't even called out yet and have only sent 2 texts :confused:

    Also the usage logging on the O2 website is crap and doesn't reflect your current remaining totals:

    Okay, Apple should sort this out as the UK system is different, but I'm finding O2 really useless right now. I have been on orange for years and they seem so much better overall, i.e, billing, signal strength.

    I'm starting to consider cancelling my account.
