Re: Does anyone know if background data option uses laods of data allowance?
I'm sorry to hear about the issues you've had with the data usage on your handset recently.
It could be that you've sent or received large amounts of data via email while connected through the mobile data connection.
If you have the emails set to 'push' or to regularly check for messages and download them automatically this could be the reason for the high data usage.
Most email apps allow you to limit how much data is downloaded automatically, with the rest of the emails data only downloaded when you open them.
Could you let us know which email app you're using on the handset and we'll be happy to assist further with this if you're having trouble (e.g. is it a third party application such as Hotmail, or one of the stock apps like the Email or Gmail apps? What type of email address are you using on the phone?
