    Exclamation The Data ON/OFF switch on ATRIX 2

    I just got this new phone and I had to get the lowest data plan I could. That being said, on the last home screen, there are switches. Do those turn on and off the data, wifi, bluetooth, and airplane mode?

    If so, the first one with the small satellite like image is the data switch, correct?

    I cannot afford to go over my data. I will be using WiFi for the most part all the time.

    Also, how can you keep track of your data usage?

    If you are on ATT you can check your data usage by using *data# on your phone. You will receive a text with how much data you have used during the current billing period.

    You should check out a widget on the Play Store called Data Enabler Widget. You can add it to the homescreen with the rest of the widget/switches. The satellite switch should be the GPS on/off. I'm not sure if the A2 has a dedicated data switch without going in to Settings.

    You can also check out 3G Watchdog in the Play Store. It does a decent job of tracking you data usage. The method that Bob outlined above is the most accurate, though.

    The app doesn't know what you've used before it started monitoring. (Some apps let you enter the previously used data in settings.)
