    I finally got a Droid. I chose the Droid Bionic! Verizon was offering a deal where you can get 4gb of data when you get a 4g phone. I have only 1 question. When I wake up in the morning I notice that about 10mb has been used overnight. I know it's not a large amount but I was just wondering if this was normal.

    Thanks

    It's probably email, Facebook, etc checking for updates occasionally. You can set up Smart Actions to disable background data between X pm and Y am if you don't want to burn your data while you sleep.

    Settings->Battery & data manager->Battery mode

    select "Nighttime saver"

    This will disable sync after 15 minutes of inactivity between the hours of 10PM and 5AM.

    You can also choose "Custom battery saver" and click the gear icon to the right and set up a custom rule.


    EDIT: I did notice that these settings only work when the device is not charging. So if you keep it on the charger at night, this may not work for you.
