data used up

My mobile plan starts on every 14th of the month, today is a brand new day. However I have checked my data, it's used up 1.5GB.
The high usage was on Aug 14 and Aug 16; and I do not understand why, because I was home; I did not travel, and stay on home Wi-Fi.

Sometimes our devices disconnect from wifi for different kind of reasons and some times we don't even realized because it will change to data. If you really want to make sure you don't use data in case of wifi disconnection when you stay home try to deactivate data

Smart phone keep history of apps consuming during a period. I would suggest to watch that closely.

It happened to me, like my home wifi was down and I didn't know it. I watched 10 min of a youtube video and boom 500mo consumed.

Maybe you went far in your backyard and watched a video, then the smart phone switched on lte.

Again, watch your app consumption history on your phone. A lot of time, it's our fault and we didn't know it.

I will do it, but this will not solve my problem... 20 days left in my cycle without data.

You can buy an add-on if you really need internet.

OR

You can also create another post asking for data withing the community. I'm sure there is a lot of people that can lend you some data.

On my iPhone I can see which apps are using data in the Cellular section of Settings. You can check to see what is the source of the data usage.

It's possible that you weren't on wifi without realizing. Like others mentioned, if you have a data plan, you can ask people to gift you data. You can ask on this forum, on the reddit sub, or the Facebook page.
