I have a time-based data plan, therefore I would like to have a report of the 3G connection time (possibly with a weekly reset). However, all the application on the market reports the data usage, and not the time spent online.

Is there an app for that (for Gingerbread)?

My Data Manager app displays what you need. Check out its data pie (left-to-right swipe) and make sure Time button is pressed.

It looks like it shows the time usage per application; which is not what I want. If I have the connection established but no application is downloading data then I get incorrect results. – michelemarcon Jul 10 '12 at 12:05

I've built an app myself! This is the best I could do: it doesn't detect time connection, but shuts the device down after a delay.

Delayed shutdown

Isn't it clever spamming?? – Evil Angel Apr 20 '12 at 15:19
No, it isn't spamming. It answers the question and the relationship has been declared. Please review the FAQ about "promotion". – Al E. Apr 21 '12 at 2:48
The actual app doesn't help though as far as I can tell, it just seems to shut down the device, nothing to do with data at all. How does it relate to the question..? Seems like spam to me. – Peanut May 20 '12 at 14:29
It is clear that the poster made this app, so I wouldn't call it spam. – Richard Borcsik May 20 '12 at 15:15
