    Default "removed apps" Data Usage???

    does that mean the data used by apps before they were uninstalled.
    or does the process of uninstalling use data?
    i had a clean out last week and uninstalled a lot but dont think any of them were data hungry.
    its used 10GB in past 3 weeks.

    I would guess it is data that was used by these apps before you un-installed them , they should defiantly not be using data after you un install them!!

    but 10GB in 3 weeks? thats half of my total usage for 3weeks and i didnt delete any browser or streaming apps.... wait i uninstalled a torrent client, could that have been sharing my media in the background? guess ill see if data use starts to go down.

    Yes a torrent client would defiantly do this and an app counts as background the moment your not looking at it so yes that is probably it.

    yeah since the date i posted this, my data use for uninstalled apps is zero so that was the culprit. must have been slowing my phone and data speeds down too!

    I have that exact problem and that removed "unused" data is still taking space on my RAM!

    I don't have any Torrent service and still have the same issue, what else could it be?

    Can you post a screenshot of your problem? I can't find a place that shows what you're referring to.

    You've already done what's necessary - you uninstalled the offending apps. You can't do anything about the data that they used while they were on the phone.
    If you don't want to be reminded of that you can reset the information but that doesn't change anything.
