Thumbs down Blackberry Data Usage Tracker?

Please Login to Remove!

Is there such as thing as a little app which tracks the u/l d/l usage on a blackberry? I'm with Rogers and they gouge you bad for data ($25 for 500kb/month) so I want to make sure I know how much I'm using so I know whether I should be more free with my usage. I did a search through this forum and through google but no one has mentioned any such program but it seem like a really useful app to have.

Thanks!

Not an app but a service. I'm not sure if Rogers has this option, but in Verizon you can dial this sequence "#3282" as in #DATA, and a SMS message will be sent listing kilobye usage. Very limited though since it only shows total usage and does not distinguish it to the upload/download detail. I wish they have a similar app called "TrafficStat" on the Treo device.

Thanks for the info! Looks like Rogers DOES NOT have this feature :( I'll email the guys who make kbtracker and see if they might port it to BB.
