    Lol. I'm going to keep an eye on this for awhile. Not sure what the cause was, especially since nothing has changed in this app since I've went to ICS. Do you know how often the data settings are updated, or if the results are displayed in real time

    Thanks, I will make sure I do this. I am also going to monitor the data settings to see if the app uses anything more than it has already. As far as I'm concerned, this app shouldn't even need access to the Internet, as all my pictures are coming across the USB cable. Is there any way to completely disable this app from using mobile data at all?

    The main thing you need to remember is that in the phone's data usage settings it says "Data measured by your phone. Your carrier's data usage accounting may differ"

    Your bill is going to be displayed in real time if you go over your data limit. FoxKat's words should be taken seriously, call Big Red or go to a Verizon Store and let them know so you don't get burned. Otherwise they will say "you should have told us when you found out about it, sorry, pay up" :)

    Doesn't motocast operate through that (gallery)? Maybe it backed up all your photos.

    Just to be safe, I would check the option to upload only via wifi and additionally, the option to upload only when plugged in. Should save on both battery and data.

    Just a quick question, I looked up Quickpic and there are two on the play store. Which one do ya'll use, the one by alensw.com or the one by josh beck? Also if I am using Gallery now and switch over to Quickpic do I need to transfer all my pics and videos over?

    This is the QuickPic that's being talked about. The other one is a camera app, not a gallery app.

    After you install and run QuickPic, it will scan your phone and SD card for media in the same way that My Gallery does. There's no need to move or transfer anything.

    Alensw.com - this one with >102,000 downloads. The other one's only got about 21 downloads - might be fine, but I'd be careful.

    Well, it appears that the issue went away. Not sure what I did but thanks for everyone's input on this. I really appreciate it.
