most cell carriers that I know dont keep a "customer copy" of the usage of their data. Whether email/internet or SMS.

Log in to my.tmobile.com. Go to your current bill. To the right you will see a link that summarizes your current minutes. Open that up and you should see a drop down list at the top of the statement that says "local airtime, ....". Click on this and you will see another option that says "messaging charges". Try that.

Yup... It's about 12 hours behind but you can see what you have used as of the date stamp on the last shown....

or you can use the short code, #msg# the send. free service from tmobile.

Other codes
#num# - own number
#min# - to check your minutes
#bal# - your balance

to get the Blackberry to dial the numbers associated with the letter hold alt and hit 'm.'

this feature service is free to use, and is updated frequently for very accurate totals.

as for the sequence 6-7-4, this would in fact be T9 for "MSG"
