    Hi all,

    The phone keeps using 3G data constanntly and when left for a couple of hours today used up over 30% of battery and was warm to touch despite not being touched during that time.

    I noticed data was being transferred but I can see no way of checking what is accessing the net? After turning the phone off and on again the data transfer stopped and the phone cooled down.

    How can I check which apps are connecting online to weed out the problem? I have used task manager to end the programs I can end, but there's obviously another place where you can end programs as popupsms doesnt show as running but I know it is (as an example).

    urgh. There's an app which monitors your data usage, but I cannot remember the name. Most likely it's the gmail app which is using the connection all the time.

    Hi,

    I use 3G watchdog to control the usage of 3G.

    I additionally use APNDroid to stop or start 3G services which helps me very good on controlling usage of 3G and helps me save battery life.

    Thank you,
