    So I got my new bill today and I noticed an extra $40 charge on it so I looked into my data usage and on one day it said I had used 4.1gb of data! I still have no idea how this is possible. I don't stream video's or movies because I know how much data they use. I check a few websites a few times a day and that's it. So I called my carrier and they couldn't explain it either. They said it must have been a hiccup in the system and removed the charge.

    Checked to see what apps are using data in the background?

    Possibly go get an app that will show you stats on network activity or turn background data off whenever possible. But other than that, yeh sounds like screw up at the carriers end.

    I have net counter installed and it didn't show that I had used that much data. And I also shut my mobile data off when not using it.
