I am slightly over 1Gb as well, but not sure exactly until i walk to my mailbox and check my invoice.
I am curently using MiniMoni 4.1 but it only registers up to 1gb data.
shows that I am using on average for the month of October 195-200 meg a day which will bring me to 6Gb uasage for the month.

The main Data hog program that I am using is Nutsie Music Streaming, Average song is 3mg, listen to 50-60 songs a day on it. So right there I am using 150-180mb a day.

I had a question actually about usage,

My provider offers something called Blackberry Internet Service which includes 5mb.

I added another 1gb plan.

Now which one does my blackberry use? Do i have a total of 1.05gb? or bbm and email are used under BIS?

So the BIS service that comes with 5mb is basically access to the BIS servers?

that shoudl be for all data usage, not just email. Surfing the web and using GPS/maps will eat a lot of data.

As for checking it, my carrier's (ATT) website shows how much data I have used. Not sure how up to date it is, probably within a day or two is my guess. Don't know if your carrier has a similar feature or not.
