    Data Usage

    Im confused about the data usage on my phone.

    After I made a call I noticed that streaming media, dialer, call settings, bluetooth avrcp had used 1kb each. Is this normal?

    Don't know as I've never taken notice of it. If your that worried about it, look for an app like droidwall which lets you decide what apps are allowed to use the data. Or get a data on/off switch/widget, so you can turn the data on when you want to use it.

    Thanks.

    Voice command has used 12kb when I've not used it. Can I stop that?

    A lot of apps 'check in' for various reasons, updates, location, verification, ads etc.

    If you are on a contract with 500gb or more I really wouldn't worry. I have unlimited use and on average get through about 400-600gb a month with heavy use.

    If you are payg then have a look at Doomed's advice.

    Disable the voice command to save on battery too. go setting-voice input and output-test to speech setting- disable driving mode.
    Watch your data consumption, one night I had 2 gega bytes consumption I am not sure if I had some application operating by mistake or something but I ended up paying $100 extra on my bill. Now I upgraded to 6 gegabyte just not to fall for that again.

    Thanks.

    Tmobile don't charge if you go over your plan. No extra charge for browsing and email.
    750mb is plenty. Only used 4.2mb in 3days according to my app

    I haven't used the net once or Facebook yet.
    I've used 4mb so far. Around 1mb per day which is roughly going to be 30mb per month without me doing anything.

    Is that normal for background data usage?

    According to my monitor app anyway.

    I've just checked my usage on my providers web site. With a small amount of usage on most days I've used 7 Mb since February 1st.
