How do I check my data useage?

I have looked all over my phone and cannot find where to check my data useage, phone timers to see how long i talked to a certain number, how many e-mails or text messages were sent. 

 

I wanted to know my data useage because I use the Wifi when I'm at home and I wanted to run Pandora when I slept and didn't know if it would run off my wifi or my data.  The phone said data useage charges still apply but I didn't know what my current useage was first off then secondly if my wifi would cover it or not.

 

If anybody knows either or both that would be great.

 

Thanks,

 

Rebecca

okay thanks.

 

Do you have any idea if I use pandora on my phone if it is using my wifi or my data plan?  That was the other question I had.

 

Thanks,

Pandora will work on a WiFi-only connection.

 

So, if you're at home, and connected to your WiFi at home, it will use the WiFi data.
