    I would like to report some really large data usage for no particular reason.
    My phone started this last weekend and only on the weekend.
    Last weekend the phone used over 500 MB of data per night on both Fri and Sat nights. It was fine all week but last night some time after 11pm it sent 340 MB and received 438 MB. I just started doing this last weekend and with AT& T this is a very bad thing. Any help would be appreciated.

    You could look what apps use what amount of data on your phone.
    TrafficInfo, TrafficStats or 3G Watchdog Pro can do that.

    Then you should look in the settings of this apps.

    Did you after the update a factory reset?
    If so the phone could has reinstalled all your apps.

    Maybe malicious apps? Just turn off the mobile network and it can't.
