My bill shows data used every single day. Mystery to me is why does it show data used while I'm at home where I have wifi? Especially strange is that bill states data useage is shown in local time; and some of those date useage times are when I would be sleeping.

How can this be?
How can I make it stop?
Help!

Wifi signal could have dropped was in a lower quality part of the house.

Or more likely is that iPhones when asleep sometimes tend to turn off wifi on it's own to save power. That is why sometimes when you wake up the iphone you notice the wifi icon on the top does not show (and it connects in a second or so).
When it is plugged in, wifi will stay connected even when asleep

Can you please post this and a few other hints as an idea or MM blog? Every week there are at least a dozen posts about this problem.

Like rikkster's post about Android data.

Data and how to make the most of it.
