  • 'Usage' Lets You See Your Cellular Usage With An Activator Action


    For those of you that are regular data-hogs and constantly need to keep watch over your cellular usage to help ensure that you donít go over your monthly limit, a new free jailbreak tweak called Usage by iOS development team Hashbang Productions is available in Cydia to help you out.

    To use the tweak, just go to Activatorís settings and select an Activator action that you want to assign to Usage. When you invoke the Activator action, a loading screen will appear and you will receive a text message from your carrier that tells you your cellular usage in the message.

    If the loading screen doesnít disappear when you receive the message, you can press the home button, then put the device to sleep and wake it up again (by simply pressing the sleep button twice) to get to a point where you can dismiss the loading screen. The text message will still contain all of the information you need to know.

    The text message will tell you how much of your data youíve usedand how many text messages youíve sent. The tweak can be faster and more efficient than opening and signing into a carrier application, so give it a try. It's free!

    Name: Usage
    Price: FREE
    Version: 1.0-1
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer: Hashbang Productions

      This one might stand a chance of working if its just like dialing your carriers code to check data use. Every other data usage monitor I've seen resets randomly throughout the month when there's a power off, respring, crash, etc... I'm willing to try it to find out but I need that jailbreak first!

      Dude I think it's the normal service you get with iPhone. It always works. It's the AT&T services button in the phone app

      Verizon has the same thing. I added the number to Verizon's contact info so I can just tap on it and get the data usage but I'm all about efficiency so if this lets me do it quicker that's cool
