    Not had this happen to me, but if you want to stop it happening you 'could' use just 2g networking.

    It might also be an idea to see if you can do a shortcut to 'running services' as through this you can kill processes that dont need to be loaded. Assuming that whatever is using your bandwidth allowance needs a running process, this could be key in identifying suspect apps.

    Might also be an idea to get an antivirus, two main ones I can think of are 'lookout' (but its reported that it does drain your battery a fair bit) or 'Antivirus' just to make sure you dont have any nasties from the web.

    Can you do without your phone for a few days? If so turn it off and if you can check your allowance usage with you PC then keep an eye on it. That way you can check and see if some how someone else is using your bandwidth or if something weird is going on. :cool:

    It sounds like a bug because I have that many apps (over 30) and dont even go over that in 2 weeks. I would use an app called Lookout to check for any bugs and if it keeps happening still then reinstall by backing evey app using an app called MyBackupor Astro.

Can someone please give me some ideas? ive disabled background data and sync and have checked running apps where there are no changes to when i first bought the phone.

    My husband has also had this problem

    3 credited back the charges and my husband bought the additional top up

    Wonder if this is a scam by 3 to get people to spend more and buy the extra top up?

    I've checked my husbands phone settings and apps and nothing is accessing the internet so no reason for this extra usage
