Also consider even the simplest of data driven displays like 'weather', either stock or a downloaded app which updates so as to always display correct information .......This may not help you however I noticed when I've got my iPhone 4 sitting in my speaker/charging dock every so often I get static noise through the speaker. Yes it does connect to Internet every so often of its own accord. Other thing to watch for is every time u open an App, even ones I wouldn't think require connection at that time (until you choose to do a sync/backup) - like "mSecure" "Azul" and others - want to connect. You can go into phone settings & select/deselect which Apps have cellular connection. Also I've found most if not all games want to connect when you open them. Also worth doing a reboot regularly and in phone settings -safari-clear cookies.
Make sure all apps are turned off for App Refresh in Settings. There may one app that is refreshing at that time. Some apps that refresh use a lot of battery. Facebook is one of them.Hi all!
My wife's iPhone4 is using excessive data. It access the internet every hour at and uses anywhere from 1 to 30 KBs. It is doing this 24 hours a day, now at 19 minutes after the hour.
Since I know she is not using her phone at 1:19 am and 2:19 am, etc. it must be a setting. I turned off the usual stuff; mail push, roaming, location services, apps running in the background, etc. but no joy.
I also wasted time calling AT&T; of course the fellow in Mumbai was no help at all (he tried to sell me a bigger data plan!).
Any ideas on this..?
I thought I got them all but perhaps I am missing something; please list the steps for this...Make sure all apps are turned off for App Refresh in Settings. There may one app that is refreshing at that time. Some apps that refresh use a lot of battery. Facebook is one of them.
I've tried the weather in refresh, but found no difference in my weather app's accuracy or timely posting of temps. I tested 2 weather apps.The only app I let do background refresh is weather. I don't monitor my data usage that closely because I've always been well under my monthly cap though.
I recall reading a while back that both AT&T and Verizon had network issues that caused this phenomenon for some folks. IIRC, a software update from Apple and a tweak by the carriers sorted it out for almost everyone.
