1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Greetings, I have a problem using packet data. I use a small subscription with my provider with a package of 200MB/mo and I need to use it wisely. I did a test of enabling packet data for a few minutes and having all apps closed and phone in sleep mode, then turned packet data off. Then I checked my bandwidth and it raised for about 0.5MB. So what is wasting up my poor 200mb data?

    Hi and Welcome!

    Here are a few things that may eat up your 200mb data plan.

    - Refreshing your email box
    - Auto updates running on some of your apps
    - Live widgets updating content
    - Map updates when using navigation

    that plan is a tough one, but if it fits your needs then why pay more for something you rarely use.

    A couple of things that may help .. when you are in a Wifi area - use the WIFI - If you use social apps like facebook, make sure your settings are set to only update/sync via wifi. Make sure email delivery service is not on sync automatically..

    Good Luck!

    My phone uses 200 MB just keeping the time. That is definitely a restricted allowance.

    Sheesh, I use over 400 MB just browsing the web, with occasional music streaming when I'm not on the house wifi.

    Well, my country's internet is expensive so I am forced to keep it low, at least on mobile. Thanks for the tips.
