How to check mobile internet usage/balance

Given that GiffGaff sends an SMS when I am nearing the end of my goodybag, How do I check anytime what is the current usage of my mobile internet and how much of Mobile internet and days left ?

 

Eg:  *100# 

Your giffgaff balance is £5.00. It's free to call and text anyone who is on giffgaff when you top up by £10 or more every 3 months, so get your mates on board.

 

Does not say how much MB of 1GB is used nor the left amount nor the days left for using this 1GB...

Is there an USSD for this ? I googled but could not find any

 

thanks

Try using an app to monitor your usage of mobile data.

I know 3g watchdog gives you the option to set limits and warnings

No there isn't, maybe it's something they will need to include

You can download data monitor apps from your respective app store

There are apps you can download which will be able to monitor your phones usage. Data usage on the iPhone is very good! To name one.

When the 1GB limit starts on the £10 goodybag giffgaff hae said that your account page will have a tracker or at least will let you know when you have used your 1GB. But this ain't out yet.

Re: How to check mobile internet usage/balance

unless you're a gigabag with a limited data allowance you'd have to monitor the usage via a phone app
