hey,

today i decided to set up a data plan for my iPhone..
today i noticed that when my phone is locked and im not using it it seems that data usage is accumulating.

example..i check my usage is at sent: 267kb recv'd:1.1MB

i then lock my iPhone and later go back into usage and i reads :sent:271kb recv'd:1.2MB.

anyone know why this is happening?

thanks

ahhhh.. i think you just answered my question :)

i set up my e-mail to gmail and its checking every 15 minutes.
im guessing if i want to fix teh problem i have to set it "not to check automaically"

Do you have a web page open that refreshes every minute or so?
hmm,
the web pages i have up are.. 1. this web site ;) 2. facebook 3. meebo (mobile msn) but i am not logged in.

i don't think these refresn themselves.

its onlt the "sent" data that seems to be accumulating

Settings-Mail, It should be under Messages. Touch next to Auto-Check.

Have you turned your phone off lately. If not try turning it off and then back on and see if that helps. Not is sleep mode, but totaly off.

Right above show, you should see auto-check. Go into that and you can set manual.

In messages section of mail settings, the very first thing is the auto check setting, right above "SHOW" 25 recent messages.

I'm running 1.1.3 also.
