DSL USAGE After changing over from windows xp to VISTA recently, DSL usage billing has increased tenfold suddenly. My usage pattern is the same as before. Why is this? Are there automatic downloads which may not be needed by me and which are being billed? What is the solution? I do not want to pay more and I do not need too many downloads and updates. My needs are elementary

Make sure u disable automatic windows updates and several other auto updates of different programs which may periodically check for updates (e.g. antivirus software). Also, disconnect your internet connection when you are not using it to avoid conflicts ;)

Viewing Mobile usage

Our 'My Plan' usage meters feature a summary and an expanded mode. The image below shows the summary mode of the My Plan usage meters.
To see the expanded mode, hover your mouse / tap on either the voice or data meter. The expanded mode displays the number of usage levels used, the next usage level and the time remaining until your plan resets and your bill is issued
The example below shows the expanded data usage meter, similar detail is shown when hovering over the voice meter
The usage summary table is just below the usage meter and summarises all of your transactions for the current month, including excluded and excess usage (where applicable)

How do I see itemised usage / individual call records?

To see individual calls / message / data sessions, up until your last bill, click the adjacent 'Usage Details' tab. More information on viewing detailed usage is available in this article

How do I view older usage?

My Account displays usage up until your most recent bill / monthly period. To see older usage you'll need to download the bill that corresponds to the period you want to view. For help with viewing or downloading your bills, see this article.

How do I check roaming (overseas) usage estimates?

For assistance with viewing roaming usage estimates, see this article.

When does my plan reset? What do I get each month?


How often is usage updated?

The time and date of the last update is shown within the usage tab, it may take up to 24-48 hours for recent usage to show. Occasionally a network event may delay the update period. It's for this reason that the usage information in My Account should only be used as a guide.
Your exact usage will be detailed on your monthly bill.

Why can't I see my usage?

If you can't see your service in the My Services list:
  • Have you linked the service to the My Account profile that you're logging into?
  • Have you logged in using a service number rather than your My Account username?
  • Is the service eligible for My Account linking?
Your usage information can take up 24-48 hours to show, if:

What is shown?

  • Usage up until your most recent bill (to a max of 1000 unbilled records)

  • Data Use (including type and amount)
  • Some Feature Use (eg. voicemail access)
  • Approximate Pre-GST totals

What isn't shown?

The following usage information is not available or calculated in My Account.
  • Usage details that have already been issued in a bill
  • Usage in the last 12-24 hours
  • Plan inclusions, bonuses, discounts or offers applied
  • Usage via another provider's network
  • Calls/SMS/MMS received

It is possible. Facebook recently updated their app so that videos auto-play which can increase your data usage if you're not connected to wifi.

My sony vaio (vista) is taking a long time from logging on to getting to the desk top. Same when I shut down. Just seems to take forever


That would be because you're running Vista. You are probably comparing it to an XP machine.
One solution may be to increase the memory.
