    Default Big jump in data usage.

    I switched from a Note 2 to the G2 back in December. This is my 5th android device since switching from a BlackBerry several years ago. This last data cycle had me puzzled...my normal 3.5 to 4.5 GB of usage has jumped up to 7.5+ and I can't fugue out why. I've never gone that high with any of the other devices I've used and I haven't noticed myself doing anything differently in regards to my normal routine. Is there anything that causes this to handle data differently than other phones? Has anyone else noticed this? Thoughts?

    No, not really. Same stuff I always use. Disabled what I didn't want/don't use. I might have one or two recent additions but that's it.

    After playing around, it looks like I failed to remember that I went from an 8 to 13 MP camera...so the photos I was sending and posting were much larger than I was used to. I changed a few settings with some of the system's auto syncing. Hopefully this'll help.

    Thanks!

    That can easily do it, especially if you share a lot of photos. Hope that fixes it. See you around the forums.
