    Hi all

    Recently (yesterday) I found a 5 digit number (10195) in my data usage that had consumed around 106 bytes. Googling around tells me this is a process ID, so I wasn't too worried, but today the process/app is missing from my data usage list for the past month when I booted it up today, which I don't believe should be possible since it hasn't been a full billing cycle/month since the phone was initially booted up. Is this a cause for concern?

    Thanks!

    Welcome to Android Central! No, that simply represents an app you recently uninstalled. They still show up to tell you how much data it used during your current data cycle before you uninstalled it. It'll disappear after the next data cycle. The number is the app's UID.

    Hi
    Data cycle should refer to the time on the data usage graph right? It doesn't seem to cycle until early October, yet the app/process number still disappeared. That's why I was wondering if this was peculiar.

    Oh I'm sorry, I didn't read your initial question closely enough. (Usually, people are worried about what it means and why it seems to be persisting.)

    It may be that the amount was trivial enough that it just dropped off in favor of other apps that were actively using more data. I don't think it's a cause for concern.
