    Hello,

    My phone (htc desire) has suddenly started using loads of data (even when phone is not being used).

    I installed spareparts and it seems the app "MyDocs" is using loads of data - I dont even have it open.It runs inthe background but when I try to stop it it keeps opening in background automatically.

    There appears to be no setting in the app to turn this off.

    What can I do?

    Thanks

    Are you talking about My Docs-Google Docs?

    https://market.android.com/details?id=com.rcs.mydocs

    If so, it is a beta version and as with all beta software, there is a risk of something going wrong. Uninstall it and try a reinstall. If that doesn't help, then uninstall it permanently.

    Is there any app to check the data usage logs? It should be able to show the session wise data usage of different apps.

    Traffic Monitor Widget shows the usage per application (Wifi and 3G).

    Traffic Monitor Widget can show data usage by apps by daily/monthly basis. Good app in deed.
    But, is there any app that can show session wise data usage by different apps?

    Not that I know of. However, you can measure the session usage by comparing the data balance in the beginning and end of session for each app.
