I do have a few accounts on my Windows Phone: two Office 365 accounts, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Windows account obviously. I do not use the People Hub for communicating with Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn folks, using instead the specific apps for each service.

Even so, still used almost 500MB of data in just over 15 days: 



It seems even if you don't use the people Hub it still chews data in the background. A bit of an urgent update needed seeing most people would have this on mobile data.

I really hope Microsoft releases an update that doesn't have to wait for telcos' approval.

Interesting. I also use mine as my main FB\twitter app. Granted I don't use it all that much, or have that many contacts who are very active on either, but it's only used 4MB for the last 28 days. I do have my data sense data limit set very low though... I've used 4GB on all apps on wifi though ;-)

EDIT: Ah ok, clicked through on the link and it seems it's an issue with twitter picture downloads - I only follow a few people on twitter.

I only use the people hub integration for both Facebook and twitter on my phone. Used 24 MB on 3G and 17MB on WiFi. Still have 19 days remaining. Have GDR3 on the phone.




Do whatever you want to do man.

Hi - I was going to start a new topic but maybe this is related...?

 

 

 

I have Telecom's 500Mb/month plan and currently my 920's "system" chews through about 35% of this...?!?

I've still got two days to run till the end of my billing cycle's month but I'm currently sitting at:

85Mb used via mobile;  and
95Mb wifi

under the grand heading of "system".

I've done what every self-respecting person does when they need info:  Googled.  But that didn't result in enlightenment.

Any ideas...?

How's everyone else's breakdown on "system" usage for data consumption...?

I'm not running anything in the background that can't be turned off (and is turned off) that could be chewing through this.

TIA!

freitasm: Data Sense is available independently of telco now. I am on Vodafone for example...


some Data Sense features do require back end telco support, obviously those features like viewing your data usage as the carrier sees it, and a few others don't work as none of the NZ networks have implemented it

For sure, great to have and see what's going on in the phone, just pointing out there's more to Data Sense than just the UI. You should see when you install GDR2 Data Sense will show you what was happening prior too.

HTC 8X (Model # PM23200) OS version 8.0.10327.77.

Should be getting GDR3 soon I imagine, see if that makes it available. Otherwise I could always do the developer unlock thing.

Interesting, thought it was still a carrier limitation, must be not enabled for my particular HTC 8X model yet.

HTC decided to skip GDR2, so you'll go straight to GDR3

as you've seen you don't have Data Sense in your current WP8 ROM
