    Question EDGE Usage Counter Not Showing Correct Usage ?

    i have an EDGE plan which includes 50MB/month (which for my country is already a lot). I check the usage counter (settings->usage) every so often to make sure i stay within those limits.

    To my surprise, i just got my phonebill which claimed i used 170.600KB (a little over 166MB), but the usage counter is only showing 4.3MB sent and 14.5MB received. Is the counter wrong, or is my phone company wrong ? I'm trying to sort trough my previous bills and see what i missed.

    Anyone else experiencing this and/or is there a 3rd party data/gprs counter ?

    ps: the only thing i really use edge for is to check my email (every 15 minutes).

    I transfered 1500 kb in 2 days and my company billed me 60 euros for it!

    The counter does somehow not show what you transfer correctly...

    Customize app is known to mess up the time usage counter on the iphone. Maybe it throws the data counter also out of gear?? Just a thought....

    The counter really sucks...

    It says after a month, that i had 32 MB.

    But Vodafone sent my my bill with 170MB only for checking mails every 3 mins...

    iPhone really sucks in this fact - a windows mobile device with pushmail only uses about 30 MB a month.

    so does anyone know of 3rd party apps that can take over this job since it seems the iPhone counter is not doing its job ? It's no big deal if you live in a country with unlimited EDGE, but for us 'limited' folk, this would be very useful.
