    On the recommendation of several peeps here I downloaded "Quickpic" last night ... it's MUCH better than "My Gallery" ... so I disabled it after installing Quickpic.

    If yours is chewing on your limited data, I would get something else. :)

    Check your settings in the APP, there is a section for displaying friends activities on the home page. I would uncheck that, there is a warning that it is data intensive and to change the settings under data to sync social over WIFI only. That should help with your data usage.

    Yep just keep an eye on it, also the Music app you can disable live lyrics and that will save some data too.
