    I've used Dataman to monitor my data usage the last few months on my iPhone 5s and it has always nearly counted like AT&T's meter. However, with iOS8 it is showing i've used 1.57gb for the month and AT&T's meter is showing i've used 1.8gb. I've also been a victim of the slow wifi.

    Maybe Dataman has a bug -- i'll reset my iOS usage stats next cycle and see how my phone counts the data usage.

    Is anyone else running into this problem?

    not here but i dont have any wifi issues never did, a guess is at times ur device is off the wifi & using cellular but why dataman & at&t dont agree idk, part of why i dont use 3rd party data apps plus they need to run in the background to be semi accurate..ill believe at&t over a 3rd party app any time. whats wrong with using ios data reporting.? thats always been accurate to me

    Dataman has been completely accurate for months. The advantage it had for me was that I didn't have to remember to reset my iOS data report every single month.

    8.0? 8.0.2 has a fix for inappropriate use of cellular data when wifi is available.

    I've upgraded to 8.0.2, but I guess i'll just have to accept Apple's buggy release blew my 2gb for the month. That is annoying.
