    I got an S6 about a month ago, with a 2GB plan, the same amount of data coverage that I had. In the years I have had a Samsung Galaxy (nexus forward) I never had a problem with data overusage. Then I started getting notices about 3/4 of the way through the month that I was nearing the end of my data usage. So I doubled it to 4 GB. And now, three weeks into the month, I am told that I have used that up.

    I don't consider myself a heavy user. I use my phone for:
    Phone calls
    text messages (much less than before)
    Words with Friends (60-90 min. week)
    Milk (Samsung radio) (less than an hour per weeek
    Google News
    Occasional Facebook (more often I use Facebook on my desktop)
    Occasional photograph (a few pictures every few months).

    I don't play games.

    Also, I don't know if this is relevant, but I have discovered that when I turn on my wifi, it sometimes blocks some apps (Milk, Google News) from working.

    I'd appreciate any suggestions on how to find out what is the problem? Thanks.

    Check out data usage in settings it will tell you which apps are using the most data

    Go into settings and hit data usage. That should give you a list of all of your apps and how much data they are using. Also, if you are backing up anything to a cloud service make sure you have the option selected to only sync over WiFi selected.
