Like the title suggests, my monthly data is being eaten by the Android OS running in the background. Over the past 17 days Android has used 1.17GB of data in the background. My last data cycle it only used 275MB and no more than 100MB before that. 275MB or less isn't really a huge problem since I don't use too much data over the course of a month but 1.17GB is a huge problem. I only have 2GB of data to use per month and I'm getting concerned that more than 2GB will be used by Android alone before my data resets in 14 days. I have done searching on various threads and other websites looking for the solution but it seems like most people fix this problem but disabling 'Back up my data' in the 'Backup and reset' page of the settings. That setting is already disabled and has been disabled since I got the phone when it first came out. Please help! **UPDATE** 11/4/13 I installed a few updates over the weekend and after about a day and a half from running off of data only there doesn't seem to be ridiculous amounts of data being used by Android OS. I'm still running version 4.2.2 and I'm not really sure why I don't have the 4.3 update but I'm not worried about that. Data issue appears to be fixed but if i have problems in the future I will be back here.
