View and Configure Data Usage in AT&T Communication Manager 7.1


Data usage can be monitored in AT&T Communication Manager (ACM) on a per session or cumulative basis.  The byte total displayed should not be used to calculate data charges if the LaptopConnect service is used across multiple machines or multiple profiles on the same machine as it only monitors data transfer on the local machine/profile. Accurate data usage could be delayed by up to twelve hours. If any of the following occur, the information in the usage meter will not be accurate.
  • Mobile device was used in multiple computers.
  • SIM card accrued data usage while in another device.
  • AT&T Communication Manager was installed since the last bill cycle.
  • A tethered handset is used.
  • Account type is Enterprise on Demand (EOD). EOD is not supported.
  • Data usage occurring around midnight of the billing cycle may fall in the next bill cycle.
  • Changing the Local Time or Time Zone of the computer.
  • Joint Telco customers usage may not match with the billing cycle.
  • International data usage.
Accurate data usage can be viewed using AT&T Online Account Management.
