For quite some time I've only had 1gb of data available to me on my iphone 5 and I wouldn't typically exceed the usage. In May I upgraded my data to 2gb because I noticed for 2 months in a row, I had to turn off cellular data for the last 3 days of my cycle to avoid overages. Now i'm using insane amounts of data (200mb in a day) but I don't feel that my usage has changed.
I don't use music streaming services and only a couple times a month will I stream youtube while on the network. I really have no idea why my usage has skyrocketed. I have yet to upgrade to iOS 7.1.1, and although I use LTE, I went months without it being an issue.
Has anyone else noticed this?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I always make sure I'm on wifi and I've already restricted cellular access to a bunch of apps.
I recently reset the cellular tracking and within 24 hours an app had used 150mb which is baffling to me.
or in the 20 minutes while I'm driving to work where I may check something at a red light, i apparently used 95mbs? there are just these random massive data sucks that only started happening since i increased my plan. before that 60mb was a big day of data for me to use. now i'll have some days that are 50mb, others that are 230mb. i don't use any song streaming apps or anything crazy. i mostly surf facebook, send emails (very rarely email pictures), and check bbc or something.
i guess it's just weird to me that i was using approx. 1GB a month for a year and half and now i'm using 2GB when my usage hasn't really changed.
