    What Is Draining All Of My Data Allowance ? (Especially at 00:00am everyday?)

    I've somehow almost reached the end of my 750mb data allowance for the month eventhough I almost exclusively only view videos etc over a Wifi connection.

    When I look on the list of running applications, I see that google maps is always active - is this one of the reasons ?

    Also, when I look at my usage log, there is always a large amount of data at midnight exactly (00:00) everyday - what is this?

    Are there any ways I can cut down the amount of data that my phone is using without my knowledge ?

    (On my old phone, i *rarely* used more than 50-60mb a month....I haven't changed my usage habits with this new phone so I don't understand how I am using more than 10x that now!)

    the large data use at midnight sounds like an app is backing your phone up or something. i'd check the settings for any app that could do this. to stop your phone from using data when its inactive you can try battery guru. under settings you can turn off mobile data or stop all apps from refreshing when you're asleep.

    I'm thinking you're probably on AT&T. At or just after midnight, if your phone is on charge it will suck some data from most phones and nobody has been able to explain to me why. I suggest you install this app. Onavo Count It will tell you which app is using the data and how much it's using.
