Why am I suddenly using so much mobile data in FP messenger, when my mobile data is turned off?
For some reason, I am bleeding data like there is no tomorrow! When I log-in to my FP account, I have used 0 minutes on the phone, 14 text messages and I have checked that "mobile data" on my Samsung s3 is turned off. Yet somehow I have managed to use 599 MB of my 550 MB plan, with still 22 billing days left to go!? I have not streamed any videos at all, played music or used other data hungry apps and I am on Wi-Fi all day at work, as well as when I go home at night. My phones usage from Nov 8-15 says that I have used 0.88 GB on FP messaging out of 2.73 GB on Wi-Fi. Surprisingly, from Nov 11-15 it also says, 583 MB on FP messaging out of 656 MB total on mobile data, although mobile data is turned off? This appears to be where the problem lies. I have noticed that small amount of data have always been downloaded every 5, 10 or 15 minutes throughout my 4 years of using FP, but what has changed to substantially increase the size of these data packets? In 4 years, due to the way I use my phone, I have never even come close to my data limit, and yet now, I have gone way over my limit, requiring compulsory top up, and still have 22 days left on my billing cycle!
