Please Login to Remove!

Since we have unlimited data plan for all devices we do not monitor this. The only time the user's phone bill goes up for data is when they travel out of the country.

check the phone bills monthly? I'd say that was the cheapest method... of course you may have to hire a grunt to slog through all that paperwork.

Here's an alternative for you.

We use HistoricalStats from the BRK. We get a report of number of messages forwarded to the BB and sent from the BB. We mainly look at the number of messages sent from the BB to determine usage.

Of course we have exceptions for our operations group who uses their BB mainly to receive alerts. Our Ops group don't send much mail.

I pull usage data (for both voice and data) from files/CD's that I get from the vendors (Nextel, Sprint, Cingular, and T-Mobile). I dump the info into an Access database that I created and every quarter I analyze usage and adjust rate plans accordingly. Take a few hours, but helps save the company money (none of which has been diverted to my paycheck, though)

Data usage monitoring - you can use B*Nator to monitor the traffic between devices and server. The statistik is splitted into mail, cal, mds and admin traffic and you are able to restrict the usage. the user can also see his traffic on the device. www.bnator.com - Home
