Yup , iPhone 4 here, no iTunes Match.. And my usuall monthly consumption is aroun 2-3 gigs.. Today as I'm reading this thread I get curious and check my usage, it's 2.5 gigs already. After 6 days of normal use..
I've experienced the whole iTunes Match problem as well. My billing period resets on the 15th. My em is for 6gb of data. So far I'm at 8145gb of usage; that's nearly $100 of overages!! I've don't nothing different than in the past.
The only things I can think of is first when I backed up my old iPhone 3GS, it may have been on my cell data and not my home wifi. Then when I restored my new iPhone 5 from the cloud.. I'm pretty sure that was over cellular. And finally there's the whole iTunes Match thing where I think it downloaded over wifi and cellular. I had quite a high usage on the home Internet last month as well...
So I'm pretty sure that it did download the songs over wifi; but also how do I explain the cellular data usage?
Anyone have any luck getting the charges reversed with Telus? Or at least softened?
I've had my iPhone 5 since a week ago Saturday. I used it to upload my entire website changes one day during that period. I am on Telus, have iTunes match and have zero issues. Seems to me to be much ado about nothing.
Well, seeing as how several people are having issues, it's not much ado about nothing. Great to hear you're not having problems, but some people are.
After talking with an Apple rep on Saturday, I backed up my Phone, then re-set it and went with Apple's stock Apps only, with one exception, I installed DataMan to monitor all traffic, both wifi and cellular. I monitored the phone for the day (nearly completely in wifi and didn't see anything unusual. I have since restored my phone from the back-up and am closely monitoring my usage and everything appears normal.
According to a Rogers rep, when my bill comes in we can check to see when the largest cellular data transfers happened. (if they really happened at all...I'm not convinced) This may shed some light on the situation. I am hoping that I can get them to wave any overages. The data usage is way over my normal use, so something screwy is going on.
Same apps. Same usage habits. Same places. Nearly all on wifi and I do not do any data hungry tasks while on cellular... Just now using the iPhone 5.
Last night at 10:50pm and 11:14pm my phone transferred 95.36MB and 95.37MB of data respectively. I was asleep at that time. This is the exact amount of data that it has transferred in the past.
It is also transferring around 25MB at least once a day. 25.77MB, 25.03MB, etc. 8 of the past 15 days.
I am on wifi at work and wifi at home, and all of these transfers are happening during those times. It's never the 1h a day I'm in the car. The vast majority of the usage is after 9pm - when I'm home, often in bed or getting ready, not using the phone at all, and SHOULD be on wifi.
Something is amiss and I'm not happy that it keeps happening!
