TMobile (USA) Minutes Used version 0.8

I finally got the extension to work again with the new TMobile web site. The default interval to refresh is set to 120 minutes. Please set the value using your own discretion. Nobody wants to bring down TMobile's web site.

You can download the version 0.8 here.
(save the file locally and then open it from Firefox: File->Open File...)

Note: If you have never logged in to TMobile's web site before from your browser (the firefox on the current machine), you need to login once for the extension to work.

I get the error "TypeError: document.getElementById("tmobile-minutes-show-red-on-projection-field").selectedItem has no properties" when I try to enter my T-Mobile phone number and password on the Options screen.

sorry, there is a bug -- you need to input a value for the "yes/no" field. or you can download the latest version which was just updated.

Could you also make it work with TMobile Prepaid account pages. The extension fails saying "failed to parse minutes used". If you could parse it for "minutes left", it would work I guess. Thanks for your creative efforts though :)

Works perfectly for me with a regular T-Mobile account. Thanks!

Obscure feature request: I have two T-Mobile accounts, one of which is a prepaid. So, I'd use prepaid and multiple-account compatibility if it had it.

Works great!
Wanted: the ability to check more than one plan. My kid's phone is on another number and I'd like to keep track of that one as well.

Hi there! Great idea for a plugin, though I'm continually getting "failed to parse the minutes used" message though.

I'm sure this is great. Any chance of a UK version?

Works great.

However, after opening my browser quite a few times while testing code, I now am blocked for 24 hours. I guess I logged in too many times.

It might be nice to have this plugin activate only when you click on the "T" icon instead of everytime you open the browser. Maybe this could be an option?

Hi, Nice Work.
Could you add the following to the wish list:
-- Display info for multiple phone accounts.

thanks,

Excellent extension. Is there any hope of having it check text messages too?

Can you add some debug messages or make the source available? I'd like to figure out why I'm getting the 'failed to parse' error.

For that matter, I'd like the status message to change when an error is encountered so I know it has stopped.

Tells me I have an incorrect phone number or password, yet I can go onto T-mobile's site through the extension link no problem and log on... any suggestions?

Thanks for releasing this program for free. I have a T-Mobile Prepaid account, I could log in to T-mobile website and check the info. This program only respond with "parsing error ..." or get stuck at "loading tmobile minuted used..." Does it work with T-mobile Prepaid accounts?

I'm also getting nnowhere past "checking usage..." and a tooltip that says "Failed to parse the minutes used".

Sorry for the "me too" comment, but this extension isn't working for me either. I have a prepaid account and it is stuck on "checking usage" and giving me the "failed to parse" message.

I second this request. Just having it show 58/500/12 or something like that would be great. It's working great on my regular account btw. Thanks for the great work.

Since I open and close my web browser many times a day, there needs to be a way to turn the TMobile Minutes used on and off. Otherwise, I get cut off from TMobile's website for 24 hours.

At the moment my cutoff has been closer to 30 hours and I am not sure if this is because the extension keeps trying to access the TYMobile site every 2 hours.

This is fabulous. I never knew I wanted to know how many minutes I'd used before. Could you add output that shows the data used so far per month?

Fantastic extension. With our family plan, the number of minutes used sometimes creeps up on me when I don't stay on top of it. Now I can see it at a glance as I work all day. For those people complaining about the continuous "Checking Usage Now..." message, try increasing the HTTP timeout value.

LOVED using this with Verizon - Verizon has the craziest password system as it will NEVER let you reuse a previous password if you ever forget it and need to request it - which is kind of spooky as that means they store EVERY password you have EVER had with them. With this extension I just let the app do the work of keeping me out of hot water with my wife on the Family Share Plan :-)

BUT now, sadly Sprint made me a really good deal and I had to switch. Any chance of doing an extention for those of us in the Sprint collective?
