This.

My wife went over and it found that while she was out Pinterest was the culprit. Then turn off setting that allows Pinterest to be used on cellular.

Edit: Just reset the usage for cellular an then watch the next month.

Well, that screen shows me my overall data usage, and yes, it does say Cellular, but then, do I get to see the overall data usage (Wifi + Cellular) anywhere, or is that information unnecessary?

Cheers

I'd say it isn't necessary - I couldn't care less how much data something uses on WiFi.

Well unless you don't have unlimited.

There's no reason not to have a high cap or unlimited with a third party provider - if you're still using Bell or Rogers, that's your own fault.

What's the point in having internet with that little usage?

7Mbps from TekSavvy comes with 75GB for $24.99, or 300GB for $29.99. Bell charges $47.95 for 5Mbps with 40GB. Why pay almost twice as much for less?

Any chance you went from iOS 6 to iOS 7 around this time?

I don't think it is reasonable to ask the provider what apps used the data. From a providers POV, data is data.

They should be able to say between 6pm and 7pm on the 18th you used 1 Gb.

Rogers already break down your usage per day on their invoice. At least, it did for me when i was with Rogers.

Like others have said data is data to any provider. You didn't pay but does that mean you are still being charged for it?

I may be a bit OT here, but as a fairly new user of an older iPad 2 with iOS 7, is there any real way to tell whether a wi-fi or cell account is going to be used to download data?

To prevent any cell use with a shared GSM account, I've just been turning Cellular use Off and wait until I'm near any wi-fi and use it.

But even with cell use disabled, I'll swear that there were some slight increases to the cell data. So how come when my cell in Settings is turned Off??

Similar to but not as bad as these users discovered with unwarranted cell use downloads:
https://discussions.apple.com/thread/5364520

Bottom line is I can't completely trust the Settings settings, as cell use don't always seem to be Off completely.
