    Hi People
    I ran in a very big problem...
    My situation:
    I got a sms from my provider that there are only 100mb data available, a few minutes later i got the next sms.. Its slow now..
    That was in the evening of the 20th August, i cleared the cellular usage protocol and bought another 1gb of data, a day later the both same sms.
    I personally used 20mb, the rest was for:
    Cellular data usage - system services - general..
    What is that?
    You can see the screenshots, 1 ****ing gb nothing...

    Anyone with the same Problem or a tip what the gb is gone for?

    I'm struggling to figure out what general is. Definitely not normal. Since August 18th I have 5.0k in general and I'm on cellular a lot. Try doing a hard reset and hope it helps.

    Go to Settings -> Cellular and check if Wifi Assist all the way on the bottom is active. If so, your iPhone will use mobile data if your Wifi is slow.

    I had a similar problem a couple of months ago (not on iOS 9, though).

    Turned out it was iMessage eating up gigs of data in just a few hours.

    I had to sign out and back into iMessage a couple of times and that seems to have fixed it.

    Hope this helps.
