    App to limit data?

    Without going into details as to why or other options I can do.

    Is there an app that will limit how much data a phone will use when not on wifi?

    One the might be lockable so that the user cannot change it's settings?

    Or maybe just only allowing data over wifi only?


    Thanks

    Just cut off your 3g, I recommend data enabler widget from the market.

    If it was for my phone I would do that. I need an app that can limit the data used like I mentioned. Something that, if there is one, that has a lock on it since this not my phone but a teenage kid.

    Thanks
    I have two teens with Droids on 2GB plans. As of right now, in VZW website I added my number to be notified when each of their phones reaches 75% of their limit. So far they have never gone over. If I were to get that notification that they are at 75% half way through the month, then I would know we have a problem.

    obviously, if the phone was rooted, it would be easier to control. Both of my daughters are running miui on their phones which has built in security/access controls.

    There is an app on the market called seal that you create a password and then select which other apps on the phone to apply it to and they are then "sealed" and can not be opened without the password. You may be able to apply "seal" to the phone settings and disable mobile data.

    Do what the Carriers do: measure how much data they use, and bill them some amount for it (e.g. deduct from monthly allowance). Nothing like making them regulate their own usage

    Ok I've came up with a mixture. There's an app on the market called quick settings, its maybe 485kb so small app, it will allow you to turn off 3g. Then to block it just download an app lock from the market and you'll be set.

    There is no need to download the extra app for settings. If you install that and block it with an app locker, someone can still go into the system settings to turn mobile data back on.

    The only way to do it is to lock the system settings.
