I have 1gb of traffic per month. Internet speed is 2.2mbits, so it's pretty easy to waste all gb in a few days. I don't usually watch youtube from my phone, and 500-700 kbits would be pretty enough for me. Is there an application or way I can manually limit 3g speed manually, without rooting the phone?

If all else fails, you could set the “Use only 2G networks” option...

Well that's too slow and doesn't worth it. But thanks) – creitve Aug 23 '10 at 10:17

3G Watchdog is capable, when coupled with APNdroid or JuiceDefender, to automatically disable mobile internet connections when you reach a configurable % of your quota.

Try NetSentry or 3G Watchdog.

I use 3g watchdog and NetCounter, but these only collect data about traffic, don't limit it in any way. – creitve Aug 23 '10 at 15:07
Did you try Netsentry? It doesn't limit traffic but can notify when limits are reached. – Webs Aug 23 '10 at 15:51
Apps which I use have this function too and much more. Thanks anyway) – creitve Aug 24 '10 at 11:56
