    My wife and I had Sprint EVOs for almost 2 years before switching to our SGS2s and in that 2 years we only went over 1 GB of data combine once and 70% of the traffic was me every month (we are almost always on wifi) . Now she is receiving warnings that she is almost over her 2 GB cap. Something is amiss. Is there any way to get detailed data usage info from the phone itself or from AT&T? There is no way she is using that much data.

    P.S. I did all of the basics and made sure she did not have any crazy Widgets that would eat data.. she only has a the TWC widget running. She also doesn't download apps for the most part and I didn't see any apps on her phone that I do not use on mine. We are both on wifi at work and home and we have 2 boys under 4 so we have no life and are always at work or at home.

    Go to the market and download My data manager free. It will do what you need. I use it and it works great. There is an app on the phone that people complain about using tons of data. I f you search these threads you will find it, it's a pre installed app from the phone and as long as you never open it it won't activate. I cant remember the name though. I think it's called AP mobile. Just do a search for it and download the app I mentioned and you will see exactly what is using your data!

    It is most likely that AP mobile app. Set it to update every 3 hours or root your phone to remove it. Unfortunately the only fixes for now.

    That AP mobile widget chews through data even without you having the widget on your screens.

    Thanks CK400... I found that is was the E-mail app using all of the data.. almost 2 MB every hour. It is strange since she only received about 10 emails all weekend. She has her work accoiunt with a 2kb per mail limit set and sync for calendar and contacts and her imap account syncing mail only... i guess I need to remove one account then monitor the usage hem remove the other and limit what it syncs to find the problem... unless here are any other suggestions from the group.

    If e-mail is chewing up data it could be trying to sync her e-mail accounts too often. If she has a primary account you might set that one to sync up less frequently and if she has a 2nd account that she doesn't feel is as important, it could be set up to sync manually. Manually syncing both would save the most data.
