    "My Gallery" DATA use is crazy. Why? I hardly ever use it.

    I take pictures sure but they do not upload anywhere, Yet it is one of the major consumers of my data. I review my pictures but don't do anymore than that.

    I cannot conceive why. Ideas please.

    I just opened my "My Gallery" and it appears that pictures posted by my facebook friends appear there as well. Could this be where the data use is coming from? If so, go into settings and uncheck "display friends activities".

    David thx for your suggestion. The box was checked. I changed it and will now monitor again. Great idea.

    Someone else posted in another part of this forum about the same problem. Just a suggestion, but "Quickpic" works much better than My Gallery. It's free in the Market, then you can disable that data hog app.
    So MattyP how do you get all the ladies??
    'MattyP' I just offer classes on upgrading their OS...
    Really?? That's it??
    'MattyP' yeah, the chicks love it when you give em an upgrade...

    Don't have any suggestions as far as Youtube, that's one of those apps that you either use it or you don't, there's not any other apps or choices. Sorry

    You probably hit "disable" if you go into manage apps/all apps and scroll all the way to the bottom, you're disabled apps are there. They get hidden from your app drawer when they are disabled
