    Early on, the iPhone was reported to have data leaks on all carriers where people were being charged for ridiculous amounts of data. I'm only going to be on 200mb of data so I can't afford data leak problems... Is it still around?

    I think it was linked with LTE. Not sure if Canada has LTE yet but that may be why?

    I'm not sure. That's why I'm asking.

    we have LTE, and fabulous speeds might i add. i just ran a speed test that shows 41.43mbps download & 26.09mbps upload.

    a few people have been complaining in ROGERS forums, but i myself have not had any data leak. thank god cause i wouldn't want these crazy phone bills some are stuck with.

    There was a cellular update and I believe that is what fixed it. At least Verizon announced that they knew that there was an issue.

    Nope. AT&T doesn't even seem to be acknowledging it. I called recently and asked about it, and they suggested I keep data turned off, but then said there's no data leakage.

    So you're still leaking data then?

    Minimally, but yes.

    I'm on an iphone 5, AT&T. I saw the issue with IOS6 on my IP4S too.
    For years I used about 300mb a month, now I'm using about 500.

    No LTE, so it's not LTE for me.

    It's little bits at a time. Today, for example, I've been on Wifi all morning and have used 1MB.

    Hmm that sucks. I might be switching to mobileshare at 10gb for 4 phones so then I'll be safe, but for now I'm stuck with a 200mb plan.

    Definitely turn off data before using youtube. I watched my husband's phone eat through 100mb while on wifi while using youtube.

    Dang that really sucks. I think when I get my i5 and it still has data leak problems, I'll document it and take the proof to AT&T.

    I've been watching my Data Usage and I'll have little bits of MB here, or a KB there while on wifi. Not sure where the leak is going or how to stop it. iPhone 5 iOS 6.0.1

    i never had the issue on at&t. it was a verizon issue on LTE that was acknowledged and fixed with an OTA update. i dont think it effected any other carriers.
