    As dpham said I don't see anything out of the ordinary for me either. My data total reflects my usage since I got the phone on October 13th.

    For the first time ever, I didn't get through a month with my normal data plan and upgraded.

    I figured this was because with all the "setup the new phone stuff" I wound up experimenting more and downloading more frequently when off wi-fi. I have also been considering whether I am just plain using more with the Note 4, but the next month will give me a better picture of that. I'm using the same apps. I can't see why offhand it would automatically be more of a data hog. If some default has been restored that I'd turned off before, the simple answer is to find out what and turn it off again.

    But in terms of "new setup," the second highest usage was Google Play store--45 megs. That would seem logical. The highest was "Android Core Apps" at 112 megs.

    Note: Flipboard used a mere 17 megs of data. It is not the main or sole reason I went from a typical 700-800 megs in a month to what would've been about 1.3gb (had I let it complete the cycle, which still has a week or so left). Facebook was next at 16 megs. Nothing else was over 10.

    At the moment, not convinced it is anything but a 1st month aberration, but we'll see how the next month goes. Although next month has some travel planned, and that always uses more data.

    I'll also be eager to see what happens after I cycle on Nov 8th. I am pretty sure I downloaded all my Note 3 apps before I turned on WiFi. Everyone seeing a lot of usage should see what it was on the prior device for this cycle and then for the first few days on the new device. I just expect in my own case it'll be the loading up of the new device. I am on a 2gb plan and I had probably 1.5 of audio books to re-download.

    I've never used this much data in my life in a month much less 2 weeks.

    Sorry about that. I forgot it was a screenshots of a phone call. Anyhow, I've used almost 32 gigabytes in 2 weeks according to my phone

    I noticed that all my apps were auto updating when I got the Note 4. That could have something to do with it?

    I'm on wifi most of the time so I'm not seeing it. I barely use 200mb a month before the Note 4, and I'm not seeing any significant change since getting it.

    I know you jest to some extent, but I was looking at some of these family plans and getting ticked off because I don't need one. They are so cheap that the 1 user plan becomes a virtual rip-off by comparison. It's a big bargain. To some extent, it is almost like some of it is just a freebie. Customer loyalty throw-ins.
