    Before I moved to WP8, I used android. I am a windows diehard and love windows phone and the UI, however it lacks a lot of features from android.
    I can't seem to find the Sim card settings on WP8 to check my balance, and I am on Three. Can someone direct me to it?

    It's under Settings / Mobile network and scroll all the way to the bottom to 'sim applications'. And fix the title, you're looking for sim apps not call/text counter (which is not present in WP - well some call timer is, but it's kinda useless). You could also check if your carrier made an app to check balance directly.
    You might also want to specify what is this Three, because there are over 50 countries in the world, most of them with 3+ carriers.

    I don't see a link to sim applications. the last one in the list is Network selection

    There's a Three UK app if that's who/what you mean? Data sense works pretty well for tracking internet usage

    Basically I want an app to tell me how many texts minutes and megabytes I have left. Android had an app for this built in but I can't find it on WP

    Nokia Black came with Data Sense which'll let you know your used Data allowance. For texts, you're on your on. I have a Three PAYG SIM and my online account and use the 3 app to see my usage,but it doesn't show texts'.
