Android has under settings it's own data usage meter that monitors data usage. But the graph only sums up and displays data used by the apps, not used by the OS. Why is this?
Why is Android OS using data, is there anything I can turn off to eliminate or minimise this? The only background service I have on that i can think of is check for software updates, but it is set to update over wi-fi only. All other data usage is broken down by apps, and all of Andoird OS data is background.
I have downloaded and am trying 3 different data monitoring apps, Onavo, My Data Manager and Data Defender, accross the 3 widgets on one of my homes screens, the usage seems fairly consistent accross all 3, but differs from what the android data meter is showing by about 14MB. the figure being displayed is almost bang on to the Android OS usage but not the other apps.
So far it would seem I have not gone over, or have not had to pay any more, but I would like to get an understanding of it, and I cant find anything definative anywhere.
