Mobile data getting used up immediately

I am on the 250Mb plan never had problems before. Now as soon as the month starts my allowance gets used up this happened Wednesday when I was sat in the pub with my phone not using it! Any suggestions - I have now had to turn off data to stop getting charged 2 pound a day!

Re: Mobile data getting used up immediately

For a start, check on the phone what has been using the data.
What sort of phone are you using?
Have you installed any new apps recently?
Are updates set to over wifi only?

Re: Mobile data getting used up immediately

Hi kjjohns,

I would definitely refer to the response from 'Magic_M' and post answers to the questions he is asking.

To be honest, 250Mb of data would be chewed up easily on 'background tasks' that your phone is performing.

You state you've never had problems before; has your phone had a recent software update or (as asked by Magic_M) have you installed any new apps?
