Itemised data bill

Do any UK mobile networks offer an itemised data bill so you can see what you've been using your data on?

that would probably be far too complex for anyone to calculate and itemise. Think of all the websites you visit, emails and messages you send, not to mention downloads and streamed video and music. Plus there's lots of apps that use data in the background and maybe your chosen OS uses small amounts of data for background tasks.

I'd say there's just too much going on data wise on modern phones for anyone to be able to work out what it's all being used for.

If you have an android phone you can use the in built data app to see how much you've used and on what apps.

Networks would never do that... The bill would be unending. You go via Google to some website, you don't just visit Google and that site you searched for. No, there are countless pitstops and redirects on the way to site X... That happens every time you go from A to, seemingly, B... You don't notice. And your network couldn't possibly guess which visit you're interested in. Not to mention the countless ads etc etc.... With apps it is similar. Not only apps that are overtly ad-supported.
So, NO.

BUT: if you suspect that on a certain day at around time x you used up to much data, then you can phone customer care to see where an app or your browser took you, possibly, unbeknownst to you.
