data usage

I use prepaid mobile broadband on my laptop via an optus modem but I cannot find a way to check my usage as I cannot open an account. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Re: data usage

Some of those modems have an inbuilt sms feature built into the administration section. If you send an sms to 9999 with the word 'Balance" as the subject you should get that information sent back to you.

Re: data usage

I’d like to check out broadband usage. How do I do it when my sim is with a different company to the modem that is through Optus?

Re: data usage

If I'm understanding your question correctly you'd need to ask the broadband provider you're using, Lisarpink?
