    The watch dog app is not capable of detecting the carrier data usage. What I mean is that if the reception from the network service provider is stronger than your wifi reception, it takes over the network without you detecting it. So you will get a hefty bill at the end of the month if you have a limited data usage. The I-phone user does not have to worry about this as the wifi can be set as the default for data usage. I am using GalaxyS2, so the only way to solve the problem is never forget to deactivate the data network mode.

    Is there an app or a way to come around with this problem whereby the wifi can be set as a default for data usage even though we have forgotten to deactivate the data network mode?

      The 3G Watch dog free version doesn’t have that feature.
