Data use


I notice I have 170 mb of data use at a certain time and day when I know exactly where I was and the phone was not in use. How do I figure out what was going on?

Just because the phone wasn't in use doesnt mean data isn't used. If 170MB were used than it sounds like an update happened in the background of your phone while you were connected to data.

Could you explain this further and advise how to prevent that from happening?

Go to Settings > Cellular, and turn off all the apps listed under the Use Cellular Data For category, and also the Wi-Fi assist category.

You also could turn odd Cellular data itself, but that defeats the purpose of the phone.
