Try 3g Watchdog,
Well I have not used it for a while but if you are rooted use LBE privacy. It can monitor which app used how much of data. It also has firewall, so you can block sucker apps.

You do know that Tune In Radio is an internet radio program so any and all activity on that program will use your network data?

Well I have a radical solution for you

Go to Settings > Accounts & sync and disable background data..However this comes with a sacrifice: Market will not work but you can enable when you want to use Market and disable it again..

But you will have full control on which app to use your data connection because you will have to do it manually, e.g. in Gmail you will have to refresh it by yourself to check new emails..

This has ups and downs, it's up to you
Thanks a lot chasmodo, great friends are rare these days

2 tools will solve ur ur problem completely, droidwall which will block all apps including system appd if uwant to use 3G and only use wifi,and onovo which will monitor all of ur 3G internet activity and even block ur 3G usage when reaching a certain adjusted quota limit..try them they willdo the trick.

OMG you guys are amazing about helping people anyway I think droidwall will do the trick but the problem I have no root 2.3.6 and my kernel can't be rooted so I think I will wait for ics. To release then I will root it I don't wanna root it now then unrooted. In 2 weeks when it comes out anyway thank you guys that was a good help
