Bug Description

Messages in indicator/metrics.cpp like

 "<b>%1</b> calls made today"
 "<b>%1</b> calls received today"
 "<b>%1</b> text messages received today"
 "<b>%1</b> text messages sent today"
 "Spent <b>%1</b> minutes in calls today"

all need to use plural forms, just like messages "%1 missed call" / "%1 missed calls" are using them in indicator/messagingmenu.cpp already.

Note that plural forms are required even if you know that there will be more than one, since languages like Serbian use the noun form depending on the last digit of the number (eg. twenty-one will use the same form as one).

Hate to bump but any progress? First Ubuntu phones are in Slovenia and this one plural form is still present while we do need all of them and singular of course.

Added libusermetrics as affected because I found no documentation or examples about how to support singular and plural messages.
