    Today I noticed my pocket was getting a little warm. Check my phone anand my battery was getting pretty low even though I have not used it at all today. Check back in about 10 minutes and it had droped another 10% and the 3G at the top was staying lit as well as both arrows. I turned off the phone and turn it back on. Still same thing. Download ATK and killed everything. I gave up when it made it from 35% to 10% in about an hour. After plugging in and leaving it for an hour it has been fine.

    Anyone have this issue?

    Yep. Mine is doing this RIGHT NOW and I have no idea why. My 3G arrows (up and down) are SOLID and won't stop.

    I've checked all kinds of apps. NO CLUE.

    Help?

    Okay, right after typing this response I clicked on my Market to possibly remove some apps (namely Weatherbug, since I suspected it to be a problem). The moment I simply opened Market...POOF....no more random up/downloads! I never removed anything.

    Maybe a solution? Even though a weird one?

    Out of curiosity have you guys tried to send an e-mail with a picture attached, OR are you using Facebook for HTC sense?

    I am using facebook for Htc sense. However i am only syncing once a day. It only recently became an issue but it now seems OK.

    I have removed the Facebook for HTC Sense and than added it back in. Not sure if something got stuck but my battery life has dramatically increased. I have been unplugged for 1 Day and 8 hours and I am at 50%.

    Turn off any auto-syncing of facebook for htc sense. There is a bug that causes it to constantly download data. It is one of the things that the upcoming update should fix. I had this same problem a week ago. I too had it set to download once per day, but it went nutso.

    hi.

    i also found ONLY after i rooted my samsung captivate 3g 2.2 froyo, it would constantly upload, uploading, download, downloading, receive, receiving, send, sending, always on. it never happened before i rooted! the 3g icon was always light up and activated, turned on, in use, showing usage.

    the only way i can stop the 3 g uploading/downloading, receiving/sending data always on, after spending hours force closing and also "freezing" every possible app (a rooted option only) was to go to "accounts and sync", then "general sync settings", then uncheck/turn off/disable auto-sync.

    turning off auto sync has fixed the 3g icon always being on and active and showing upload, uploading, download, downloading data transfer.

    i don't have facebook or twitter, but if you do, remember in your facebook settings to turn off/uncheck the facebook auto sync.

    auto sync (before i rooted) ONLY, and i mean ONLY, turned on (auto synched) ONCE each day for my android phone @ 6:03 am, period, end of story.

    however, if i changed a contact, sent a gmail, or changed a gmail calendar item, it would auto sync afterwords, BUT just once, using the round rotating circle indicator. but my problem, like yours, was the red and green uploading/downloading (upload/download sync) arrows and my battery was getting very hot.

    but ONLY after i rooted, auto sync has gone wild, and is always on, uploading/downloading (i mean the red and green arrows, NOT the round circle) constantly. it is the upload/download arrows showing uploading/downloading of data that went wild. the round circle/dot with arrows on it was not the problem. the uploading/downloading red and green arrows indicated a constant, and i mean constant, upload or download of data for NO reason.

    i finally determined ONLY after i disabled auto sync, the 3g red and green uploading/downloading (data) arrows finally stopped. i tried to force close every app possible, and had i already deleted the bloatware from at&t and samsung i never use,which made this a waste of several hours.

    fyi, i tried a zillion possible phone setting solutions to fix the 3g always being connected, constantly uploading, downloading, synching, always activated, always having data transfer turned on. now, after turning off (unchecking) the "auto synch setting, the full time, contant uploads, downloads, uploading, downloading, data transfer syncing has stopped.

    P.S. I LEFT BACKGROUND DATA TURNED ON WHEN I FIXED THE ANDROID PHONE 3G UPLOADS/DOWNLOADS (constantly and always uploading, downloading, receiving, sending, with the 3g icon and indicator always lit up and turned on).

    i specifically and only just turned off (unchecked) auto-sync!


    edit: i may have caused this as i deleted the stock "email" app since i only use Gmail on my phone.


    i did not want 2 email apps, and the stock Gmail was ok with me. i do not like my personal email to go to my phone, and only check my normal email at home. i only use Gmail because android requires it. i don't give out my Gmail address to anyone. thus, i did not want 2 email accounts on my phone.


    well, the stock email app, although i never, ever used it, nor did i enter any settings, does have a setting for how often to update/sync.


    i am wondering since i deleted the stock email app, if it caused an imbalance - allowing Gmail to go wild, even if i never used the stock email account. Gmail and the stock email app may be interrelated some how...
