Internet usage

For some reason my mobile phone keeps connecting to the internet once every hour..! Even when I'm asleep..!!! When I look at my bill it says 'using the internet' at virtually the same time every hour...e.g. 2:09...3:09...4:10..etc. Does anybody know why it keeps doing this..? I would be grateful for any feedback..thanks.

Re: Internet usage

Normal for a smartphone to use a little data at intervals, not usually a problem unless you have no data allowance left, turn mobile data off on the phone if need be.

On the hour regularly, sounds like a windows phone ?

Re: Internet usage

I also have this issue.

If the phone is connected to wifi at home, why is it using data?

Re: Internet usage

So many reasons it could be why.
Could just be the way operating system is designed to work normally, location services or any of the apps you have installed?
