  • The Connection Manager UI optionally displays local counters to the user, and are resettable by the user at any time.  These counters are not controlled by the operator app.  The app should show billed usage on the app tile.  Data set via the UpdateUsage API or the Plans section of the Provisioning XML is surfaced to apps, so they can tailor their behavior appropriately.
