Is anybody having trouble with AT&T saying that you have used up so much of your data, when you use wifi most of the time?

I have an iPhone 5 & said that I used up 65% of my 2gb. I'm on wifi @ work & @ home. how is this possible?

Happened to me too! In your settings under cellular, my provider told me having "enable LTE on" will also chew up your data faster those few times you might not be running off WiFi, because it loads data faster. I had never had that problem until I got my iPhone 5 (iPhone 4) never had a problem. When you get iPhone 5 it automatically was set to be on. So turn that off so it doesn't keep happening. I haven't had a problem since, and that was months ago when I got my new phone.

Yes most definitely. They said me and my boyfriend went so far over our data limit that they charged us an extra 390.00$ on our upcoming cellphone bill!! And we are hardly ever on the internet on our phones because i have a home computer!! We told them we wanted the charge removed. They said they would look into it and would give me an answer on the 3rd. Well...im STILL waiting!!

Turn off your 3G/4G data connection on your phone, and leave wifi on. Your device may be bouncing between data and wifi, so turning data off will guarantee it won't connect and run up your bill.

My beef with AT&T is they say that I'm almost out of data when I own a unlimited data plan. Once I've used 4 gigs they shut my connection speed down to 0.1 for the rest of my billing cycle making streaming and gps not an option to use.

Go into your settings and turn that cellular data off. Stick to wifi only because if u have both on and you're not connected to wifi the cellular data connects directly to the AT&T network and charges u up the behind even if you're not directly using the Internet.

It is probably from when you text and call
