    Since October I've had an issue where when I have data turned on, my battery starts draining very quickly and my data usage skyrockets. The phone also gets pretty hot during all of this. There are transfers of at least 500 kb/s as soon as I turn on data and check the network usage logs. Even with every app closed data is still being used, so I'm led to believe it is a tweak that is causing the problem. Here's what I have installed:

    Activator
    AppCent
    AskToCall
    Auxo
    Bars
    BatteryDoctorPro
    biteSMS
    BytaFont
    Color Keyboard
    f.lux
    FastBlurredNotificationCenter
    Flex 2
    FolderEnhancer
    GlyphPatch
    iCleaner Pro
    iFile
    JellyLock
    Live Battery Indicator
    Nitrous
    OpenSSH
    PrivaCy
    Safari Download Enabler
    SelectiveReading
    ShowCase
    Springtomize 2
    SSL Patch
    SwipeShiftCaret
    WinterBoard

    I'm using an iPhone 4 running iOS 6.1. Does anyone know if any of these tweaks are known to cause problems? Otherwise what's eating up all of my data? Thanks a lot!

    I don't know. It's been 2 days since you've posted about the problem you're having. Have YOU found a solution?

    Do any of those tweaks above have background 'usage statistics' or other 'data auto send' functions ticked?

    I've got the below tweaks that are the same as yours on either one of, or both of, my iPad and iPhone and none of them have caused a data spike at all. None of the tweaks below cause any problems, nor are there any reported with 6.1, which I had on my iPhone (iPad on 7.0.4).

    Activator
    Auxo
    biteSMS
    f.lux
    FastBlurredNotificationCenter
    FolderEnhancer
    Nitrous
    Springtomize 2
    WinterBoard

    Sorry I accidentally posted another one of these, this site confused me. Anyway I don't have any of those options ticked and I still don't know what's eating my data. This is really frustrating and it's been happening since October.
