    Hello

    I didn't find any Mango app that can measure WiFi and Data connection traffic.
    I have 60 MB of free gprs connection at my phone provider so I need to know how much I consume during the month.

    Thanks

    It's because it can't be done.
    In order to count the amount of data transfered an app would have to run in the background(actualy run).

    Can you monitor the cellular data at the providers website?

    Conversely, ATT provides an app that will tell you your cellular usage (not in real time, it is updated through their website multiple times a day). Perhaps your provider has an equivalent app?

    Thanks for replies

    Unfortunately, my providers don't have any application for that.

    Even if such an app is provided I'ts not actually a data transfer monitor.
    It only sends a request to your service provider for the data and displays it.
    What WP7 needs is an app that would constantly monitor data transfer and disable data connection when the user specified limit is reached.
    Too bad it can't be done.

    I get a text a warning text from my service provider when I reach 80% of my allowance. Seems to work for me.

    Exactly. This is something that would need to be built in to the OS. And with all the new restrictions and tariffs probably not a bad idea.
