One of my must have apps. It’s a really solid app with great features, and does just what I expect it to, counting data! I even recommend it to my friends who just bought android phones.

complete and stable

Still Amazing Even with ICS built in data manager, I still find myself using this apps. It just covers everything AND after all those years, not a single version of it has ever had any issue. You just can’t get more complete or more stable.

What’s new in 3G Watchdog 1.18.0

Written by Richard. Posted in Blog

Independent plan period duration & start date for roaming usage
 
Previously they were implicitly the same as for local and Wifi usage.
 
The new parameters are in the “Roaming” section of the settings (they are visible only if you have a roaming quota, i.e. usage is not unlimited).

New auto-disable mobile network conditions
 
In addition to already existing conditions you can now also auto-disable the mobile network:
  • when local usage for today exceeds a % of the recommended local usage for the day.
  • when roaming usage for today exceeds a % of the recommended roaming usage for the day.
  • at the end of each roaming plan period cycle. Note that in this case it’s up to you to manually re-enable the network.  
These conditions can be set up in the “Auto-disable mobile data network” section of the settings. All conditions have now checkboxes, so you can easily enable or disable them individually.
3GWatchdog-1180-2
The mobile network will be disabled if any of the checked conditions match.

What’s new in 3G Watchdog Pro 1.17.2

Written by Richard. Posted in Blog

* Options to send SMS alerts & daily usage reports
 

These options, introduced in 1.17.0, have been removed from 3GWP in 1.17.1 because of security concerns raised by certain users, mainly because  they require the “Send SMS” permission, classified by Android in the category “Services that cost you money”. On the other hand other people voiced their support for the new features. 

 
The solution implemented in this version to satisfy everybody is to make the SMS features availability dependent on the existence (installation) of a new application named “3G Watchdog Pro SMS extension” whose sole function is to actually perform the SMS sendings. This extension requires the “Send SMS” permission but 3G Watchdog Pro does not. With this solution you have now the choice
 
– If you want to use the SMS features then install the  “3G Watchdog Pro SMS extension” application and configure the options in 3G Watchdog Pro Settings screen (they are located in the Alerts and Misc sections, respectively).
 
– If you don’t need these extra features or don’t feel comfortable with the “Send SMS” permission, do not install the extension.
 
 
* Device support: Asus PadFone 2 on ICS
 
* FIXed tethered WiFi usage non identified as tethered usage on the LT15i w/ ICS
 

3G Watchdog Pro SMS extension 1.0.0 released

Written by Richard. Posted in Blog

The “3G Watchdog Pro SMS extension” is a new application available on the Google Play Store. This is not a standalone application but only an extension to 3G Watchdog Pro (1.17.2 and newer) which adds the ability to optionally send alerts and usage reports via SMS to a chosen recipient.
 
It requires the “Send SMS” permission. This permission will be used exclusively to send 3GWP alerts & reports SMS, and only if you enable these options in 3GW Pro’s settings.
 
Do not install this extension if you don’t need these extra features or don’t feel comfortable with the “Send SMS” permission.
