Hey fishs, this bullet point stuck out to me, what are you using to monitor the carrier used data? Is it a provided service (I know Verizon offers a data monitor and even sends you text messages...)

Also, did you do your factory wipe *after* your monthly cycle? If not, your carrier would still know that you've used the other data before the wipe... that could be an explanation of the 1GB vs. 250KB

The other issues I'm not so sure about. My S3 seems to only have an issue with copying from within the web browser (which I'm sure a factory wipe would cure).
