How to Check Your 3G Usage on Idea NetSetter

I have been using 3G data services over Idea Net Setter for more than 2 years and so far happy with it as network coverage of Idea is better than others in MP & Chhattisgarh.

When I started using Idea 3G Netsetter around 2 years ago, a message containing statistics for last used data and the balance data, used to appear each time I disconnect the Net Setter. These messages was very helpful in keeping control on my 3G data usage. But suddenly on an anonymous day, messages stopped appearing leaving me in the dark.

My friend suggested me to call the Idea customer care to re-enable the messages, but I never bothered as I found a new way to check the balance data on Idea net setter. You too can check in the same way.  Here is how –
