TMobile (USA) Minutes Used version 0.9

The new version has the feature to disable the extension from the status tray. This is demanded by many users to avoid hitting the TMobile web site too often when opening new Firefox instances.

You can download the version 0.9 here.
(save the file locally and then open it from Firefox: File->Open File...)

Other popular demands are to support prepaid account or show data usage. Since I don't have either capability with my TMobile service, my account page doesn't show it. I need someone to send my a screen shot (html file) and I will be happy to enhance the extension.

Which page do you need and what e-mail should it be sent to?

Great tool, but I'd rather not see the pink "T" dowm there - just the numbers. Could you implement this?

Hello there. I've sent a screen shot of my billing data showing some message usage. Hopefully this will help out. Not seeing another email address I sent it to the one you use for paypal donations. Thanks.

I love the extension. However, t-mobile is now blocking me from their website, sending me to a knowledgebase article.

I had my preferences for your tmobile extension set to dial in every 120 minutes. Which should be fine, because the knowledgebase article says not to check in more often than every hour. Obviously it isn't fine.

I've changed my update time to 300 minutes. Which should be fine, as I really only need to see a new update once a day. But I'm not sure why I ran into this problem at all. Is your extension hitting tmobile's site every time I launch a new browser window?

I should be able to get back into my tmobile account in 24 hours. So it's not the end of the world -- but it is annoying.

every time the browser restarts, it checks again, unless you disable it manually (with the latest version)

A feature request: I'd like to be able to check usage for more than one number, so I my wife and I can each keep track of our usage.
