    Default Massive Late Night Data UPLOADS

    This morning I got the dreaded "you're close to 3 gig of data, we're about to throttle you" text message. That seems odd because I've not done any slingboxing or pandora lately. So I go to my account online. Seems I'm having massive UPLOADS of data at really odd times, typically when I'm asleep. What's even more odd is I'm on wifi when at home.

    Google searches reveal this has happened in the past to folks on AT&T. Anyone else have this problem now?

    Never. But call AT&T immediately and dispute the data record. Get it put in your notes.

    Those are supposed to be usage logs uploaded to AT&T when you are asleep. However that's not supposed to count against your cap, even more so if you are on wi-fi at home.

    This happens with my husband, and it DOES count against his cap. I have started turning his phone on airplane mode overnight like I do with mine.
