    What is eating up my internet data?

    Greetings, I have a problem using packet data. I use a small subscription with my provider with a package of 200MB/mo and I need to use it wisely. I did a test of enabling packet data for a few minutes and having all apps closed and phone in sleep mode, then turned packet data off. Then I checked my bandwidth and it raised for about 0.5MB. So what is wasting up my poor 200mb data?

    Hi and Welcome!

    Here are a few things that may eat up your 200mb data plan.

    - Refreshing your email box
    - Auto updates running on some of your apps
    - Live widgets updating content
    - Map updates when using navigation

    that plan is a tough one, but if it fits your needs then why pay more for something you rarely use.

    A couple of things that may help .. when you are in a Wifi area - use the WIFI - If you use social apps like facebook, make sure your settings are set to only update/sync via wifi. Make sure email delivery service is not on sync automatically..

    Good Luck!

    My phone uses 200 MB just keeping the time. That is definitely a restricted allowance.

    Sheesh, I use over 400 MB just browsing the web, with occasional music streaming when I'm not on the house wifi.

    Well, my country's internet is expensive so I am forced to keep it low, at least on mobile. Thanks for the tips.
