When I look at my Booster usage (Self serve prepaid) after making a call, my data used goes up and then goes back (around an hour later) to the initial value before making the call. Is it a normal behavior? It's not a problem for now since I still got 1GB but a 5min call take over 50MB so it's just a question of time...

I am on prepaid too, but I have never ever seen this behaviour... did you make the call using VOIP (like Skype, or Vipre)?
If you just call using the minutes booster, you wouldn't use data at all... at least I don't :)

Not using any voip. I did a test with mobile data off but it didn't change anything. It look like the data base has a delay for processing voice vs data.

Ah, that would make sense... but I can absolutely guarantee that calling does not use any of your data booster :)

Seems it doesn’t, but I'm not sure what will happen when I won't have enough data to make a call... :P
