I own a Bionic, but this post is actually in behalf of a friend, who recently bought a Razr Maxx and is having a ton of issues with data (he does not have home internet, and is about to go crazy, so I am posting this for him).
So, he bought the phone with a 2GB plan. Almost immediately the phone, specifically the browser started using excessive amounts of data. It would get so bad that it would go through 1.5 GB just with daily usage for simple stuff like looking up google news. It became almost impossible to even watch a simple youtube video. All syncs off, and all, and the phone just would go through data like crazy.
He went over to the verizon store and no one really knew what to tell him. Finally, an employee suggested it was a "virus" and that he should reset the phone to factory settings. He did so, and it began to work just fine, he could watch videos and surf going through data normally.
Now, this billing cycle, the phone began to go through data again.
Day 15th of the billing cycle the browser used 1.39 GB. Youtube app used 240 MB. He has done nothing more than just regular browsing, google news and the like.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
