Description

The first-run tutorial has a screen saying
> See your accounts credit, phone and data
>                use.

Aside from the fact that my settings screen just shows data usage (not credit or phone use, whatever those are), there's a typo there:  "accounts" wants to be "account's" (with an apostrophe)

This is with the first "beta" dogfood build. (unagi_beta_2012-12-03.zip)

er, I meant "status-bar dropdown screen" (not "settings screen")

We should take this, it's super-low risk.

Are we minusing all polish bugs now?

Isn't 's supposed to be used for entities which can possess things?  </nitpick>

Yep, but that's exactly what we have: credit that belongs to an account, or multiple accounts, so account's(singular) or accounts'(plural).

Well that's the point.  Accounts can't possess things, AIUI.  But then again I'm not a native speaker.

It definitely can be used like that. http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/possessives.htm
While we are editing that string, I think "data usage" is better than "data use". "Your data usage" is a figure in MB. "Your data use" is what you do with the data when you get it.
