    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 have seen and every time someone asks such a question with a long list of tweaks and apps they have added to the device they have the only way and it takes times but start one at a time until you find what is causing the issue and delete it.
