Mobile phone owners who find themselves going over SMS, call minute and data allowances on their telecommunications network contract could save money by downloading the appropriate application and monitoring usage.
Three, which claims to be "the UK’s fastest growing mobile operator", has a tool which can be used on Apple iOS and Google Android devices.
The provider offers an Ultrafast network, which will apparently be available to over half of the UK by the end of the year, so customers may want to keep up-to-date with their data usage.
By downloading the application for free, users can check how many minutes, text messages and MB/GB of data they have remaining, check bills, access help guides and even play a fun free game.
Those who have taken advantage of the new EE 4G network should download My EE, which is also available on the two dominant operating systems.
My O2, My Vodafone, Your Orange and My T-Mobile apps also offer usage-monitoring services.
