    My X10 is currently using upwards of 30mb of data a day - with 0 emails coming in. The only thing I am doing with it is getting facebook updates every 15 minutes, and email updates every 15 minutes but so far it is only pulling my gmail account that no one knows so no emails are arriving. I am spending maybe 20-30 minutes total on web pages (mainly checking my work webmail) and about 15 text messages.

    It seems Waaaaay to high (would put me over 1 gig for the month - everyone at Rogers and all my friends had me convinced that 500 mb was tons and given my usage level I would never go over).

    Am I crazy or does this seem like way too much to you guys?

    Are there any attachments on your emails? Downloading any apps over 3G? Visiting any image heavy webpages?

    No attachments. Only a couple of one line test emails.

    No aps downloaded over 3g

    Not sure exactly on the web pages, but no not really.

    I posted about this a couple of weeks ago that without doing any surfing my X10 was transferring about 10mB data on its own and the 3g icon was almost constantly flashing! Try turning off your Facebook updates/email updates one at a time and see what is causing so much traffic. Are you using 3g watchdog?
