    Between 12 and 1 last night I used almost 500mb of mobile data, about 1/2 my monthly allowance. Most of it was upload. The phone was 2ft from the wifi signal which was on. What happened? Also is there an app which will identify specifically the source of the usage?
    Thanks.

    Do you have your wifi set to stay on during sleep? Go to settings/wifi/click on the three dots in the top right corner/advanced/check that it says "always"

    Wifi is always on- I checked. So I can only assume the wifi went off for a brief period. What I would like is an app that identifies the traffic that is occurring when something like this happens.
    Thanks!

    Go into Settings / Connections / Data Usage. It breaks down your usage by application. That might help track down the culprit.

    I think I know what happened. I now remember I turned off wifi for what I thou ght was a brief period because my dsl speed goes to nothing late at night, but forgot to turn it back on before I went to bed. My backup cloud service then uploaded a bunch of videos and pix. Stupid, huh? Sorry to bother you, but thanks for help.
