    It's unlikely to be the phone. The data consumption is probably due to one or more apps that are constantly refreshing. You need to pay close attention to which apps are accessing the web and how often. There is a section in Settings/Wireless & Networks that can show you data usage by app, and there also should be a setting to allow you to restrict data usage or alert you when usage reaches a certain threshold.

    Using the 3 network identifies you as a UK user, and UK consumer law should provide adequate protection if the device is a lemon with defects as you claim. However to recover your charges from the phone's supplier you would need to prove it is "not fit for purpose" so get everything in writing.

    On a brighter note a problem like you describe is probably a software bug so all it needs is a bug fix in the next version. You shouldn't need to send your phone back and wait weeks for a fix which you should be able to install yourself in less than 1 hour.

    Sorry to hear. I haven't had that issue. I'm on a 2GB plan and my M8 hasn't been using data while on WiFi.

    I was going to call this topic as trolling, but 3 has had some major mistakes with data in the past. I guess their phones are set up wrong, tho I would blame the 3 custom load since htc M8 on other carriers DOES NOT DO THIS. How is Orange doing over there?

    Sorry you're having an issue. I've had mine for going on two weeks and it's sitting at the exact same data usage as my Nexus 5... Not saying you didn't have a problem, but it's possible that it was 3's configuration and not the actual device.

    I use mostly wifi, so I just switch my data off unless I need it. No worries.

    No it's not the worst phone it simply has a problem and can be fixed. If a phone having a problem makes it the worst phone ever then all phones are the worst phone ever.

    Get a better data plan. How many gigabytes do you get a month?

    I have to say, by your logic my nexus 7's power port issue which I had to send it in for makes it the "worst tablet ever, nobody should ever buy it, Asus is loser. " judging this phone on one isolated issue is a little bit silly, don't you think? If there were dozens of people on this forum complaining about 600 data overages on their M8s, I would be more inclined to say that it's a bad phone. However, this has been the only complaint you've had and it certainly could have been a carrier issue and not the phone.

    Is there something that you're holding back about that caused you to decide that the M8 is indeed the worst phone? If so, tell me, since I definitely want to know before I buy one.

    Worst phone due to data usage? I have many friends with the M8 and not one complains about the issue you're having. I mentioned it to them and they had no idea what I was referring to.

    I'm not, it doesn't make sense. When mobile data is off, the radios can't magically pick up a signal and use data. Doesn't add up....

    Doubtful. I have a 4GB data plan and the M8 barely crosses the 1GB mark only when I am traveling for a week or so at a time and do not hook up to wifi.

    You probably have a rogue app eating your data.

    You should consider a larger data plan. 1GB is a very small amount of data.
