Default Data Usage

Im on vacation and returning tomorrow so for my flight i downloaded the app need for speed. I was using internet then. So i checked my data usage and it said need for speed used 600mb of my data. But without even having data on how does it say that. Am i going to need to pay extra for the month? I only have 500 mb and it says i used a total of 2 gb. Is the thing saying something else?

I know this might be a little obvious, but did you make sure that the little checkbox that is labeled "mobile data" is ticked? I wonder if it is showing wifi usage instead...

EDIT: I tried unchecking the box & it asked if I wanted to turn off mobile data, so unless you have your mobile data turned completely off, I don't think this is the issue...

Default Re: Data Usage

Were you connected to wifi when you downloaded it?
Most games like that download an innitial part of the game but then when you open it, it needs another huge file so just make sure youre on wifi when you download that second huge file

Just re-read and if your "data usage" is telling you youve used 2gb then im pretty sure that means mobile data? And yeah youre gona get stung for it on your next bill

I got a new update and it has a tick for wifi on or off. I turned it off, also, my orange bill ended yesterday and i wasn't charged. I guess i had no option to turn off wifi or not.
