    I'm seeing a lot of mobile data usage while my phone is in Wi-Fi range using up my limit. I have my Wi-Fi setting to always be on during sleep mode. What apps or setting is bypassing Wi-Fi and going straight to mobile data?

    How are you checking? And roughly how much is "a lot?"

    I'm logging into my AT&T account and checking my data usage looking at the time and kbs used. It's using data in the middle of the night 20 feet away from my router. It's consistent.

    This is frustrating. I turned OFF mobile data for the last two days just for fun, it still is using mobile data even with it turned off and in Wi-FI range. Small packets ever 6 hours or so. AT&T is not sure why.

    I'd blame them.. If your phone is adding data when you didn't do it they need to find why. Put your phone into airplane mode one night.. So no cell or data connection should be active. If it adds... I'd be having words with them.
