MyWi Continues Using Data When Turned Off?

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?

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.
