    Noticed it said I used 64GB this billing period which for me is absurd. School has wifi and I barely get service at school with sprint. Even since owning this phone perhaps I used 64gb of data

    "Current period" is since you last reset it, not your billing period. You phone has no idea when your billing period is(n't). Scroll to the bottom. You can see "Reset Statistics" and then below that is a note of when they were last reset.

    Ah thanks. I know on Android it had a feature which did billing cycles so I figured it worked like that

    Typically apps from cellular providers can track that. I know I have one with Verizon that tracks it as a widget from the pull-down menu.

    I usually reset it myself on the last night of my billing cycle to get a better idea what apps used how much this far.

    I've always wondered why Apple doesn't just let us put a date in for when to reset every month. I have tried to remember, but short of setting a reminder (don't really care enough to got hat far), it generally doesn't happen on time. I am also prety sure it would ick up streaming data anyway, which doesn't count since I am on TMO now anyway, so I don't see the point. I would've liked it on ATT though.

    I set a reminder to reset statistics for the first day of my billing cycle. I usually do it right after midnight.

    It would be nice if AT&T had a widget like this.

    I have done this but in terrible at reminders lol. Kids. Dogs. Wife. Unless I'm at work things don't ever go as planned.

    I guess I could set it for the middle of thrifty at work!

    To me this is one of those simple "quality of life" issues that Apple has simply not cared about in iOS. It's like scheduling a text. I ran across a thread the other day for 2011 where someone wanted to schedule a text. The resolution was setting up a reminder to do it. In the grand scheme of things these issues are all relatively minor, but a bunch of minor conveniences are what make up an awesome OS. Maybe someday.

    Have you sen the app "Due"? It bothers you continuously until you mark the task as done. I don't personally have it, but I've seen several who swore by it.
