    I have never thought to turn it off. Not really that paranoid about it.

    I have my cellular data settings turned off for apps I think could use up my data anyway.

    After j first updated to iOS 9, I had no idea it was on. It's wasn't until I received a text AT&T that I reached 75% of my data usage. I was streaming NetFlix and it switch from wifi to cellular. I have cellular data turned off for the Netflix app itself, but somehow data remained on cellular. Luckily AT&T credited my account.

    Glad to hear AT&T was willing to work with you. I'm hoping Apple does something to better alert users when wifi assist kicks in. I like the feature but I'd like to know when I'm using it.

    That's cool of AT&T. Maybe I'll ask VZW for a credit this month. I'm about to go over with 2 weeks left because of wifi assist. The thing about it that's not right is, like you mentioned, it overrides your settings to stream or download ONLY on wifi. I have my podcast settings to download only when on wifi but wifi assist OVERRIDES that. So I used a gig a day for 7 days as my podcasts downloaded on cellular using wifi assist. I don't check my data until the last week of my cycle normally. I never go over, usually having 2-3 GBs left. But same as you I got a text alert. I thought it was a mistake.

    The new iOS 9.3 now tracks how much data wifi assist has used. This will help people see if it is affecting usage or not. You'll have to monitor it.
