Average monthly usage?


Where can I get a usage history of my account. I'd like to be able to see how many minutes and how much data I'm using on average per month to see if I amon the right plan for me and so I can adjust it accordingly

Yes I can see this months usage but I want an AVERAGE MONTHLY USAGE.

Take the usage. Sum it. Divide by the number of months worth of usage you summed. Tada!

I can do the math but how much trouble would it be for Koodo to put it on the app?

Unfortunately Koodo doesn't give an "average" usage. As Dennis said, you need to do it by yourself!
What a pain in the butt. Now I have to save a copy every month.

Koodo took data summaries away for a while before bringing them back, so you'll only be able to see your data usage for the past 3 months.

Why? Once you have a rough idea of your monthly usage, all you need to do is compare the usage recorded on subsequent bills to your previous average. The purpose of a bill is to help you relate charges to the usage for that billing period. If you have the need for further number crunching, a simple spreadsheet might be useful to you. Dennis has given you the math to calculate average usage. With a spreadsheet, you could number crunch even more creatively. For example, you could track what percentage of your minutes was used keeping in contact with specific friends. This would guide you in determining whether adding the "5 essential" callers for $10 per month was cheaper than switching to a more expensive plan. YMMV, but my phone shows the data usage for each of my apps. This enables me to determine where the bulk of my data use occurs. If I were close to my limit, that info would help me determine whether to upsize my plan or change my data usage. A spreadsheet can be fine tuned to give you exactly what you need, something a generic bill is not designed to do.
