    Ok. I am getting myself an iPhone 4s ! I am going to change from my iPhone 3g to the brand new phone :cool: :D and I am planning t jailbreak it.
    BUT!:eek:
    A)I went to my phone company to ask the for enabling my cellular internet, and if they can set a limit over 3g. And the said no. There is no limitation for the cellular internet and I will be charged for every MB extra I am using a ridiculous price. So, I want an app from appstore or Cydia that blocks celluar internet after some MB or GB.
    B)There is a app called 3g Watchdog but its for Android, which allows you to see in you Notifications center, how many mb you are using on your 3g and WiFi separately.Is anything for iOS?

    Thanks very much and I appreciate for you're time.

    (Dont judge my language , I am trying my best. :D)

    Normally your provider is supposed to send you a message that you are about to go over your limit, if you get that message you could just turn off your cellular data.

    Your iPhone will essentially become an iPod touch that can make phone calls, but data will only work if you're on WiFi.

    Well I want to spent all of my available MB and after that my phone will block me automatically to get access to the (cellular) internet. Is anything that does that?
    Thanks!:apple:

    While you continue looking for a better solution, you could always download a usage monitoring app that will push a notification when you've reached the limit of your data plan. You would still have to manually turn off 3G, but at least you wouldn't be dependent on waiting for an email from the carrier.

    The problem with this is, a lot of times AT&T's data usage estimate runs a few hours behind, and by the time you get the warning, you might already be over limit. This happened to me while I was travelling for the holidays and went beyond the cap. I knew I was going to go over and was read to pay for the extra GB, but I can see people being caught by surprise over this.

    That's precisely why I suggest the OP should try a usage monitor app. Anybody have a suggestion for a good one? I haven't come close to my data plan limit (home network wifi is faster) so haven't bothered checking out apps myself.

    Just before you rush into anything, be aware that there is currently no untethered jailbreak for the 4S yet

    I don't know if you have AT&T but there is a way. I found it by "accident" when I was blocking numbers. You have to purchase a feature called "Smart Limits" it is 4.99/mo and it will allow you to see a data limit per month or per day. Block numbers, etc. It gives you a lot of control to restrict things on your phone. Try it for a month.

    Data Usage without a doubt is the best one I have used. I've tried many different apps and this is the most accurate one.

    Currently there is no jailbreak for the iPhone 4S and it might be a while before we see one.

    No you dont. You can see it anytime you want.

    Hes talking about a program for att, smart limits, which is essentially meant to control kid's usage but one could use it for anything.

    Just to complicate things even more

    My data usage on the phone doesn't correlate to what my network is reporting.

    It is a good few hundred Mb's out.

    For some reason my 4s has been using 2x to 3x as much data as my last phone

    100% sure. There are many frustrated people around here because of it. Just search the forums and you'll see.
