    I love my G5. Every thing about it... Except one.

    I need some advice on how to get the G5 from chewing thru my data in the foreground. I don't know how to stop it.

    Getting the background data stopped is easy. But I can't seem to stop the foreground usage without actually shutting the data off completely. I never had this issue with any of my other phones.

    Even with the limit set it just screams right past and I'm paying for going over.

    Any suggestions?
    Thanks.

    Go to network settings and see if you're phone is set on global.

    I found the "network" stuff but there's no "global" setting that I can find.

    Here you go : settings > wireless networks >more> mobile networks >system select >network mode, then choose CDMA for Verizon, or GSM for ATTACH, etc.

    Go to settings >data usage, scroll down the list and see if any apps are using an unusually large amount of data. If you could post a screen shot of the data usage someone might be able to spot something.

    I do have Greenify installed. Still eating up my data. I've not found a solution yet. I guess shutting off the data for now is my only option.

    I do appreciate everyone's input though.

    I think it's fixed now after the latest update.

    I seemed to notice sort of the same thing going on with my phone Greedog. Chrome is currently highest on my data usage list with Facebook 2nd. But I mean today alone it seemed to shoot up quite a bit and I don't recall watching any videos or anything. Just some light web browsing.

    Like I said..

    I think the last update repaired whatever was going on.

    I'm keeping an eye on it. Will keep you posted.
