    It sounds like you installed an app that's causing this. Time for Spring Cleaning on your phone - uninstall any apps that were installed around the time this problem started, or look at the permissions using something like Permission Explorer: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ssion_explorer to see what apps might be responsible.

    Or make a backup using the Kies software and then perform a Factory Reset and be careful about what you reinstall.

    Unfortunately it takes some work to look at the various permissions and see which apps are using what. IIRC the app gave a description of the permissions so that you could get an idea of what they were supposed to be used for; pretty much anything requiring network permissions should be on your short list.

    As the previous poster mentioned, that's the best way to uninstall apps - that way you know you're removing everything.
