There are some applications that must be the part of operating system but I don’t know why these ones are absent or not included, and NetCounter is one of them.
The important thing which is associated with mobiles is data traffic. There are very few countries where you are allowed to transfer unlimited data at fixed rate. So if you are worried about your bill, you must have installed an app that records the data being transferred in and out.
