    I was testing MyWi 5.0.

    When I turned the WiFi Hotspot on, I started to use data, and when scrolling down to the statistics section, it was showing how much.

    I then turned the WiFi Hotspot off, and a few minutes later, I scroll down to see that the Usage was going up!

    Under Active Users it says 0, and my Current Battery is Draining between -432mA to -80.

    Is this normal?

    Over 400 views and no one has anything to say about this?

    Is this normal then?

    What statistic section are you looking? In the Setting>Usage?

    There are many reasons why it's using data. You may have notification, push e-mails, etc turned on and these uses data.

    Well, this is what I'm seeing.

    As you can see, the Hotspot is turned off:

    But as I scroll down, in the Statistics section, it's showing the Down and Up Data Usage, and that I'm using Data somehow:

    ^Yet, there are 0 Active Users.

    The only thing I'm worried about, is that the Usage gets high to the point that Verizon notices it, and starts charging me.

    I also got another question, do I need On Demand to be able to use MyWi for an iPad to be able to connect to the Internet through my iPhone or will I be able to use it without On Demand?

    It's draining battery because the app is still Open? Just end the app through multitasking.

    The draining batter isn't my concern, it's the fact that Data Usage is continuing, even though I turned off the WiFi Hotspot. I don't get it.
