    High Data Usage

    Does anyone else have a problem with insanely high data usage by the OS on this phone? My wife has this phone and if I look at the data usage for just one day Android OS is using about 30MB (that is more than my Galaxy Nexus uses in a month).

    I have turned off all backups and try to have most auto update stuff only happen over wi-fi. I actually brought the phone to a Verizon store and they did not know why this was happening. I then called LG support and the woman told me "that is just the way the phone works"... but I think she just did not have any idea what she was talking about.

    I am hoping to figure out a way to fix this (I am more than happy to root to fix the issue, but I am not sure what simply rooting will do... I would assume that some settings would need to be changed as well).

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Welcome to the forum

    Try installing OS Monitor (here) It will tell you what is going on pretty much all the time if it's running.

    Hi... I have installed OS Monitor, but I don't see how that will tell me why the OS is using mobile data. I can see how much memory and CPU it is using, but not what it is using mobile data for. Can you give me any instruction on this?

    Thanks!

    Watch the process screen to see what's going on in the background. You can also use Data Traffic Monitor (here) which may be able to pin it down a little better.
