SPB Wireless Monitor allows you to monitor data traffic on your Nokia phone. It helps you save money by calculating how much you're spending from your data plan.

You can view and manage your network usage with SPB Wireless Monitor in a number of ways. The app provides you with an Application Report, showing you how much data is being consumed by each app you're running. The Traffic Report displays the total amount of data consumed on your phone.

Both of these reports in SPB Wireless Monitor allow you to filter data usage stats by Mobile (via carrier's data plan), or WiFi. You can also specify the period of time you want to show data for (daily, monthly, yearly, etc.) You can even export reports as a file.

One very useful feature of SPB Wireless Monitor is the ability to set up alarms that alert you when you pass a certain amount of data usage. This is very handy for monitoring when you're about to exceed your data allowance.

It would have been great if SPB Wireless Monitor went a stage further and allowed you to put a cap on traffic for a particular app. This would prevent an application from consuming lots of data without you being aware of it.

As it stands, SPB Wireless Monitor is an effective way to keep track of all the data you are using on your phone.
