I just upgraded to your newest self-serve app for the iPhone, Rev 2.0.0

I was very disappointed to see that the bar chart for the elapsed days in the month had been eliminated.

I loved the previous version of the app specifically for the 2 bar charts showing the elapsed days in the month as a portion of the total billing month, and the bar chart below it showing my data usage as a portion of the total data usage allowed in the month.

Without the bar chart for the elapsed days in the billing month as a portion of the number of days in the billing month as a while, there is no way now to tell if my data usage is progressing at a lower, same, or higher rate than my billing month.

That way I would know whether to ease off my 3G data usage and use more Wi-Fi, or that I had lee room to use more 3G data.

Please restore the bar chart for the elapsed days in the month.
It was a valuable tool and I had received many compliments on your behalf about how much sense it made to have the two bar charts one above each other.

It does say how many days left in your bill cycle. Isn't simply reserving the math achieve the same? Say if your data bar is half way and you have 14 days left you are progressing evenly.

This feature on previous version of the app was removed because data overages are a significant revenue stream. The more difficult it is to tract your data usage the more likely you are to run over it. It is up to consumers to be vigilant with their usage.
Personally, I don't mind running over because even with the extra $10/Gb my plan still ends up significantly cheaper than the other guys.
Just be watchful and you'll be fine!
