    Default OS services using crazy amounts of data

    A few times I have woke up in the morning to see that my data manager says I've used over 600mb of data in an hr. It's weird cause I have wifi in my house. I don't have the sync setting on my phone. When I check to see what is using my data it says OS services. It has happened to me at work too. I even have my mobile data off and it says I use 400mb of data in an hour. I have straight talk and only get 2.5gb of high speed Internet a month so this is frustrating. Anyone else have this problem?

    Hmm... I've never heard of that. Maybe someone is spying on you at the CIA or something. I don't know, did you update anything recently?

    Just the 4.3 update. The last time it happened I had my mobile data off and it used 400mb between 9am and 10 am which is when I'm at work and not even on my phone. I went into my data manager to see what was using the data and it said os services.

    Do you happen to use Google +? It may be syncing your photos in the background.

    I just had this issue today. Please did you find out how to block the OS services from consuming data?
