Description Andrea Borgia (reporter) 2009-10-26 21:51:40 UTC
SOFTWARE VERSION:
1.2009.41-10

STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM:
1. get an ordinary (i.e., limited) dataplan and use it
2. wait until end of billing period (day, week, whatever)

EXPECTED OUTCOME:
counter resets to zero and starts counting again

ACTUAL OUTCOME:
counter keeps growing, manual reset is required via the system gui

REPRODUCIBILITY:
always

EXTRA SOFTWARE INSTALLED:
n/a

OTHER COMMENTS:
when auto-resetting, it'd be a nice touch to store a history of recent usage
data.

Please Andrea vote for your bug, we need it to be confirmed. I incredibly need
the auto reset feature.

For the future, please email me directly: it helps keeping noise down in
bugzilla.
Not sure voting an own bug makes that much sense, but there you have it, I
voted.

You can address it using "Alarmed" from Maemo Extras.

I reinforce Iván's suggestion for this app to use a similar mechanism as
Alarmed uses to schedule its reset.

AFAIK Alarmed is a GUI for the already installed alarmd daemon.
I think it is onerous on the user to have to install another app for
functionality that seems that is within the obvious sphere of concern of this
one.
