WP7 Users Reporting Inexplicable 3G Data Usage

Posted by: Mike In: Microsoft

Some users are reporting mysterious data spikes that seem to be eating up their monthly allotment, and the issue may have something to do with how WP7 devices handle WiFi.

One WP7 user reported unusual nightly transmissions of 30-50MB, as well as a huge 400MB burst when taking the phone out of airplane mode.

On December 22nd I received an email from AT&T saying that I was close to my 2GB data limit which truly shocked me as I feel I do not use data that much. I went and looked at my AT&T account online and noticed that my phone was sending huge chunks of data seemingly in patterns. For instance on November 21-24 it sent between 30 and 50 MB of data at 10:41pm each day and Dec 1-4 it sent between 30 and 50 MB of data at 9:41am each day. On December 23rd I turned on airplane mode so my phone could no longer send data. I turned airplane mode off briefly on December 23rd and the phone sent 400 MB of data. I called AT&T yesterday, December 28th, but they said that there was nothing that they can do to figure out what was happening on my phone.
