Default My Dell Streak is eating my Data - needs urgent advise pls

Guys I need your urgent advice

My Streak is getting connected to internet every day Mid-Night and using huge chunk of data, as a result, I am getting warning messages from 02 indicating that I am abusing my Data allowance. However, I have no idea how this is happening as I am not doing it myself.

According to my bills its happens 00.00.00 these are some examples

10 Dec -10 00.00.00 mobile.o2.uk 23357 kb
09 Dec -10 00.00.00 mobile.o2.uk 83388 kb
08 - Dec -10 00.00.00 mobile.o2.uk 79678 kb

This goes like this every single day

(1) How can I stop this (2) How to check which app is getting connected. As this is happening automatically

I appreciate your advice.

Check the Battery life app within Settings in the App Drawer. It should give you a list of what apps are using the highest percentage of CPU on the tablet. This won't provide you data info but it'll let you know which app is using the most CPU time.

Another thing to try would be to disable mobile data on the phone and see which apps complain. My guess is that you have a poorly written widget or app that's acting up.
Yea though I walk through the Valley of Google I shall fear no Apple...
