    The iPhone 6 I'm using is still eating through wireless data even though I toggled the "Cellular Data" switch off. New phone, set up from scratch.

    Steps I've taken:

    Disabled Cellular Data
    Disabled LTE Voice/Data preferences
    Disabled iCloud
    Disabled App Store auto updates
    Disabled Individual Apps
    Disabled Background Tasks
    WiFi enabled
    Latest version of iOS

    The 2gb plan I have with AT&T has already run over. I checked the account and it's still pinging a server and downloading 20mb chunks of data whenever it wants.

    What gives?

    It's not jailbroken.

    So you disable cellular data and it still uses carrier data?
    That doesn't make sense.
    Restore and setup as new.

    It looks like it's Tumblr. All of the apps were individually toggled off. The phone shouldn't sent/receive anyways because I turned the service off with the cellular data toggle.
