    Still gone on Lumia 1020. Not surprised the carrier would need to support it.

    Thats the exact reason I got the 520, I just don't want to risk bricking my 1020. And at less than $99 its not a huge loss if you screw something up; besides its still a great backup phone.

    ATT blocks it across the board on WP? Sketchy.

    Thats sucks. I was hoping Microsoft would get its act together and get rid of the carrier tyranny.

    I think we basically need to wipe and reload a complete OS from scratch to get data sense back. This appears to just be a patch update.

    1020 on AT&T with GDR3 pre-release does NOT have Data Sense. Carrier approval is likely needed, as I think it accesses some of your account info. But I wouldn't know, considering I've never used it... >_>

    IOS and Droid don't have a datasense like feature where it can lower your data usage either.

    I wanted to go to ATT to get the nicer WP8 phones, but its kind of a kick in the balls that they don't actually support them in a timely manner. One further I can't believe they'd block such a great feature like this. Guess I'll stick with Verizon until I know this new MS program is going to stick around and I won't have to worry about carrier updates anymore.

    You're surely kidding? I've had Data Sense on my 920 on Vodafone in NZ for months now since GDR2 became available.

    to be fair, AT&T has poor support for most devices. Its not just WP they shaft. Your pretty safe with iPhones, of course... They are just as terrible with Blackberry, maybe worse, and Android seems hit or miss.

    Thanks for pointing that out, sounds great for anyone who's on a tight data budget, but doesn't want to have to cripple their device on WiFi!!!

    Android as a whole seems to get very little love. Unless you buy a Nexus device direct from Google off-contract, or you root your Android device, you're likely not going to see many updates. ANd of course, the Nexus devices are running pure, stock Android, and they're off-contract, so that's the only real reason they receive updates.

    Samsung occasionally updates devices, but as you said, it's a hit or miss. On the whole, if you buy any Android device (again, with the exception of Nexus devices and some Samsung flagships), don't expect any major updates. That's Android fragmentation for ya...

    Maybe not...but they have apps that can let you monitor data usage in real time, and what apps are using that data. In fact, android has had that part baked into android since ice cream sandwich....and at&t didn't strip that out.
