data usage on bill

My account details show data usage on the hour every hour. Only a small amount each time but even when i haven't been using the phone. I must be missing something...

Re: data usage on bill

Hi fredyneptune,

many Apps automatically use data regularly to update themselves e.g weather app, operating system, email, facebook e.t.c

If you want to prevent this you will need to disable mobile data in your phone's settings.

Re: data usage on bill

Being on the hour every hour, sounds like this maybe a Windows phone? - quite normal if it is, its also normal for any phone to use small amounts of data at anytime even while connected to WiFi or phone is just sitting there asleep.

As suggested, you'll need to turn data off if this concerns you enough.
