Heavy data usage after upgrading to Gingerbread
So I took the plunge yesterday (3/30/11) around lunchtime and put Gingerbread on my X. Everything went smoothly, and I decided to do a full wipe of the phone just to start from scratch and have everything clean and new.
Needless to say, this meant I needed to do a lot of "housekeeping" and setting my phone back to how I'd like it. I know that syncing my accounts, reloading apps, etc would use a lot more data than an average day, but according to my usage history from Verizon, something went crazy last night when I wasn't even using the phone.
Between 7:00pm-10:00pm last night (once Gingerbread was installed and I had all my settings just about set up) while I was at event and not using my phone, there was massive data usage, upwards of 300-400MB.
Any thoughts on what this might be? I noticed my battery going down really fast during the event, but I didn't notice the sync icon or anything else out of the ordinary. I'm hoping that today and going forward my usage is back to normal, but somehow I managed to use the amount of data I normally use in a month all in one day.
