    How to control data usage on Android 2.2?

    I own a Dell Streak running Android 2.2. I ran a basic monitoring tool that showed that if I left my phone in idle for a month, it would consume 130mb. I prefer not to disable background data so I can get email without going into it. The only apps that run in the background that I'm aware of is email, weather, and I think the Dell Stage UI. For the other apps, I've set them to update every 4 hours or so. I have also checked to see if there are any applications that can monitor usage by application, but I keep finding the ones out there do not work due to the way the Dell Streak has implemented Android. Please help!

    If you want to control your data usage in Android 2.2 then best app would be ONAVO COUNT.
    This app provide lots of feature to your phone.It can also control your phone data.It will also block the data to use.To do this you need to set your data percentage.Suppose you have fixed your data at 30% once you complete 30% it will automatically stop the data usage & give your reminder in notification bar.ONAVO is one of the best app available in Android market.I am sure after installing it you will not regret.It provide many functions.Size would be 3.56 MB & automatically update.

    Re: How to control data usage on Android 2.2?

    Hello Friend,

    Since Android depends heavily on a Cloud connection and syncs your contacts,emails etc to your Google Account.Plus it also updates with apps like Facebook,Twitter and other third party apps which would finally get quantified to almost 4-5 mb of data daily.However there are some very basic methods which can really help to control data usage on your Android.

    The methods are:-

    1)Disable data usage for background apps:-Go to Accounts and Sync settings and uncheck background data.

    2)Turn off Auto syncing.

    3)Disable auto update for apps.

    4)Set Wi-Fi sleep policy to never:-It may cost you a little battery but would prevent Adroid from switching to mobile data and hence you can control data usage.

    5)Use apps like "Phone Usage" and "netcounter"

    Hope It Helps!

    Don't forget to leave your valuable remarks.

    There are many apps to count network traffic but the best one is 3G Watchdog Pro.



    It helps you determine the amount of packet data you are using.

    It also has a cool widget to display data directly from the home screen.

    It works on any android mobile which has android 1.5 and up.

    Try 3G Watchdog Pro---> link
