I have Mobile data set to OFF and the Data enabled box (under Mobile network settings) deselected but my 'phone is still using data!!! Does anyone understand what is happening? The usage statistics suggest Maps, Google Services and Android OS are the worst culprits. I'm on PAYG and do not want to pay for data, I'm happy to just use WiFi.
I recently purchased the Lenovo phab 2 pro. And since day one I noticed this problem, I had the same exact problem, data was turned off and I was always charged for using data and eventually loosing my balance, I got mad I thought that's a software problem and I wanted to return my phone back. And thank God I found out a solution to this problem by making my phone to use 3g network and avoiding 4g network. I don't know why does 4g network on this phone secretly uses my data??!! I had a 4g network phone before that and never had this issue.
Any way the problem is solved Alhamdolilah
