    I am having the same problem! I'm so afraid that I keep my phone on airplane mode when I leave the house! Ita not an app issue considering I have what's installed. I think it's done on purpose to charge excess data fees. This has only happened with Verizon

    If you turn DATA and WiFi off, background data cannot work, period.

    If you have WiFi on and connected, background data can use that and it will not use any of your Data Plan.

    I have att and I keep my WiFi on. My data only comes on when I'm out of a WiFi area or when I make a call or get a call or text. Maybe you need to take the phone into a store to find out what's going on.
