While investigating the possibility of going to a shared data plan (which resulted in a "no") I was researching our data usage. What I found kind of disturbed me. My wife and I use two different smartphone ecosystems. She has the iPhone and I use a Windows Phone. I used to use the iPhone but the small characters hurt my eyes and I prefer the simplicity of Windows Phone. But this isn't a thread about that. What I wanted to discuss was an apparent data leak that comes with iOS6. First, let's look at the Windows Phone (webOS prior to Apr 2012) data usage. What you see is my data is fairly high when I was working at Wi-Fi lacking facilities and when we went on vacation (due to using the phone for over the road entertainment). Both of these facts are not unexpected. Now let's look at iOS 6. My wife has been employed throughout this entire chart. You see a spike in June for the vacation as she watched some ABC shows during the trip. But look what happens around the time iOS6 launches. My wife went on another trip in August and I'm willing to bet she watched some more TV while using her phone. But that jump in September is extremely high. Even worst, when I look at her bill, I can she pulls down a lot of data around the same time every night she uses her phone in her bed to watch something. We have Wi-Fi in the house. I'm usually using the iPad right next to her and I have a full signal. So I know it's not because the Wi-Fi is bad. I know Verizon patched their carrier for the same problem. I just want to bring this to your attention so that AT&T will do the same. Because as long as this crap is going on, we have no desire to even remotely consider a shared data plan.
