    All,

    You may notice that the 3G consumption is not so good, even worse than the droid (and you'll be right...), especially when signal is weak. The better is to deactivate 3g unless you need it, I think. Therer are some apps that can rapidly do this through a widget.

    I did it.... but i don't know why but it keeps draining my money.... i unabled g3 but i can still see near the signal zone another signal with an "E" on it, what does it mean? Do you think it keeps draining all my money because i've got some widgets like bbc news or because i enabled files on background? Please help...

    E = EDGE, a faster version of GPRS. It is 2G, though.

    GPRs ans EDGe are data connections, but you can disable data connection, I think.

    Hey Lesjaw!
    Thanks for the quick reply.
    I still dont have an unlimited plan because here in Brazil its kinda expensive. For now I have 250 megs plan, my usage is low.. just to check email.. some navigation and IM, do you think 250 Megs can handle it?

    Thnaks again!:)

    i use 500 mb quota per month..but if at night i'm in home..so i use wifi for data connection...but i'm a heavy data traffic user..for u i gues thats enough..

    install app like net data counter or 3g watchdog..to monitor your data usage..
