After close to a year with a Pre3 (well, two, switched from a 8Gb to a 16Gb model a few months ago), I barely use data, but since last month, I've had some massive spikes.
Two days with over 100MB, one over 200MB... I have no idea as I really barely use any.
In a normal month, out of my 500MB, it's really rare that I use over 100MB, heck, most month I use less than 50MB.
I normally do not leave any cards/app opened, nor did anything different.
I can't find any way to check history (browser) by date/time/usage, so I'm stuck with a nasty situation and ended up with over 300MB over last month, and this month, I'm already near my 500MB (only 75MB to go with 19 days).
I've gone ahead and added extra data to protect myself, and have turned my data off for now (and will keep it WIFI only for a few days).... but this is crazy.
Anyone has any suggestions about how to pinpoint what could be doing this.
My ONLY guilty pleasure has been playing 2048 a lot on it, but aside that, I've only done a few calls, a few texts, and looked up an address (and map) within the month.
The worse part is that the 200+MB was a few days ago, and my provider is saying that this activity was at 8:37 a.m., and the only thing that I'd be doing at such a time, is getting ready for work, possibly checking if I have emails, at the bathroom playing 2048, or on the road already. And if home or at the office, I have my WIFI anyways... I rarely forget to turn that on (if I did turn it off to save power if I plan to be away from home/work for most of the day).
The only thing I can think is that 2048 is pinging the web while you play it.
