For people which do not have flat rates on outgoing calls and SMS it would be very usefull to have counters for incoming/outgoing SMS (later MMS too) and counters for how much time was spent on incoming/outgoing phone calls next to the data counters.

Of course, there should be options to reset the counters.

Even better would be a setting for resetting all counters each month automatically.

EDIT: Changed title of the question. It was "Counters for SMS and calls needed" before.

rather than only resetting each month, if there is a reset option it should also be possible to do it manually. Saw the need for this recently (on another mobile platform) when changing SIM cards (so need to reset the counters), only option was to "fake it" via reset dates :(

The phone also needs a character count when composing SMS messages. That way the user can avoid running into the cost of two messages if the count exceeds the limit - 140 chars?

It's a little hard to find, but there is a counter for voice call minutes: Open Settings, Apps, Phone. You can pull down to reset it. Maybe that would be better moved to the same page as data counters.

There isn't any counter for SMS currently, and no automatic reset. I'll let others vote on how useful those features would be :)

Thanks for that hint. Yes, I supposed this counter on the same page as data counters. All counters on one page (including SMS) would be very useful. Thus, you don't need to look at different pages to see monthly call/SMS/data quota status. I used Call Meter 3G app for these stats on Android before.

Yes, these counters (data w/o roaming, sms and call durations etc) are very useful and should be found easily.

I have a SMS volume rate and would be interested in the counters. Especially for MMS as I have to pay for each one.
