What is a DU postpaid connection

Track your postpaid usage on Android with Droidstats 2021

A few weeks ago, after getting annoyed with the frequent top-ups every other day and changing the hard-to-follow language plans, I decided to go for a postpaid cell phone plan. Yes, India offers both prepaid and postpaid tariffs for cell phones. The majority opt for the former because of the obvious advantages and cost control. But for a heavy cellphone user like me, a prepaid plan may soon become more of a nuisance, which I've been noticing lately.

Although the postpaid connection offers a stable plan since you are no longer on a leash, you might end up with a heavy bill by the end of the month.

For those of you who use an Android device, I have just the right application that will help you get the prepaid leash back on your postpaid connection and get the best of both worlds.

DroidStats is a nifty application for Android that makes it easy to keep track of your postpaid calls, SMS, and data usage. Don't worry, you don't need to root your device to get this feature. All you need is a droid and that's all. You can easily monitor limited free calls and then use the information provided by the application to lower your costs.

Setting up the app to monitor postpaid usage

Step 1: Download and install DroidStats on your Android device from Google Play. After the installation, start the application to start the configuration. I'm going to show you how to configure DroidStats to keep track of every single call and text message from your phone.

Step 2: In the application, press the Menu key and touch Settings. If you have a free version, you will see four active settings here. The first is that monthly limitwhich allows you to configure the free monthly data calls and the limit on your phone.

For example, my postpaid connection offers 1400 minutes of free talk time with 2500 SMS and 1 GB of data-free usage per month. So I want the Droid stats to finish off all of these free uses first before actually charging me for every call. So, if you have a free usage limit on your plan, click Monthly Limits and enter the free calls, SMS, and data limits. You can also configure the start day of your billing cycle at the bottom of this page.

Step 3: Switch to the Billing settings . Here you can set the SMS, call and data prices.

You can also provide numbers that you can call for free or send via SMS. The best part is that we can use wildcards to indicate these numbers. For example, all landline or cellular phone numbers in India over 1800 are toll-free. So I can just type 1800 * into the app to have DroidStats skip any numbers that start with 1800.

If you have free night calling packages, you can configure them in this section as well.

Step 4: Go to the application settings. Here you can control how the application should behave.

The Actions settings can be used to reset the database and manually correct the data if DroidStats misses a specific event.

You can now monitor the use of your postpaid data on your Android smartphone.

Note: Some Samsung devices may have a data monitoring problem.

You can also buy the premium version of DroidStats for on-screen widgets that let you know your limits and get a detailed analysis of your call recordings.

My judgment

Honestly, I'm impressed with DroidStats. With features like free limits, toll-free numbers, and time-specific call monitoring, it's hard to miss anything. So if you are thinking about going for the postpaid connection because you think your mobile habits can put a heavy load on your pockets, the first thing you should do is install DroidStats on your phone.
