    Verizon iPhone 7 Plus 128, current OS

    I think it might be ATT U verse (my IP)

    Looking at my usage, Im seeing 800-900 megs at night (3am or later) when I know I am sleeping and I know Wifi is turned on. There answer is "turn off cellular, when your on Wifi" Something is wrong and I wanna get to the bottom of it.

    I have 16 gigs a months, I don't stream music or watching net flix, I am going over ever month.

    facebook has been known to cause this in the past, delete the app and see if your usage goes down

    Remember, when you are looking at your usage on your Verizon account, its not posting in real time. AT&T and Verizon typically update data usage through the middle of the night. The usage you see is most likely the amount of data that was used throughout the day.

    It's real time through the widget but I think it's verizon. just read an article about this issue & there's a petition for it actually.

    Thats the time it hit their server, not the time the usage was actually used.

    According to AT&T, I used 2.1GB last night between the hours of 11PM-6AM. But used no data between 10AM-10PM.

    If you reset your Cellular data stats, check in the morning. That should tell you what is using it.
