Usage tracking


Nov 3, 2008, 2:38 PM
I've been month to month for a while now on another network and I'm considering going to T-Mobile. I've been interested in the G1; however, the thing I've not been able to find any information on is wether or not google tracks your usage (i.e. What websites you visit). Anyone know or have info on this?

The Data usage is not visually tracked on the device like minutes used while talking. No phone does that. You need a data plan because you'll use up your $$$/minutes if some type of data program is used on the phone. If you have Wifi running you could get away from it, but the device will automatically switch to a tower if the signal is stronger than the Wifi without telling you. To be safe, sign up for the plan and data plan. T-mobile has the cheapest calling/data plan than any other carrier.

I've researched this in the past just to get a smart phone as an organizer, but everyone says you need the plan or you'll have a huge bill for data usage if you try to cheat the signal by using wifi.
