I'm looking for an app that can count my daytime minutes usage. I only get 200 free airtime minutes between 7am to 7pm Mondays to Fridays until the 24th of each month. (After 7pm my plan has unlimited minutes.)

Preferably, I want to be alerted by the app when I'm going over, i.e., by the 28th it alerts me if I've exceeded 26 minutes.

Phone Usage is a great app that can monitor usage and do all of the following! (description on app page)

Monitor your phone call, text and network data usage.

★★★★★ "Loads of similar apps on the market, but this one beats them hands down."

★ Set limits on daily, weekly and monthly usage.

★ Alerts when you break your usage limits.

★ Widgets for calls, texts and data.

★ See which apps are using the most data.

★ See who you call the most.

★ See usage per hour, day, week and month.

You might want to take a look at DroidStats:

DroidStats Main DroidStats Widgets

(Screenshots from the Playstore). It also offers you to define free numbers (which you are not charged for), to exclude them from your calculation. As the screenshot2 shows, you have widgets giving you a view at a glance without invoking the app itself. In fact, I only do so if I want to browse statistics: Whom I called most, with whom I talked for the most time, and the like.

As for notifications: The donation version at least allows you to place the widgets inside the notification bar. I think you got a warning when reaching your limits, but I'm not sure as I rarely happen to do so ;)
