I have noticed that for the past few mornings when I wake up that my data is over 800mb for the previous day on WIFI while the phone charged overnight. I am using data monitor tweak to report this. I am not streaming or anything and nothing has changed on the phone no do I use icloud backup. I installed iNetUsage to track which app is downloading all the data at night. The app is reporting back com.apple.itunesstored as downloading over 400mb last night. So far I am about 11 days in to my month and wifi data is over 4gb and normally I only use about 3gb for the entire month.

Can someone please help me in figuring out the problem or if there is one?

Thanks:confused:

i think im facing a similar issue. i started to notice this happening yesterday. didnt really pay attention to it before. when i go into var/mobile/media/downloads folder i see an anonymous folder and file. the file size inside the folder increases close to the same amount. it disappears afterwards. its weird that it only happens every single time when i reboot my phone, connected to the notebook, and on wireless connection with cellular data turned off. another user suggested it maybe an OTA v6.0 update. whether it maybe the case or not. still not a clue what it is. puzzles me as well.
Phone type: iPhone 4S (v5.1.1)

You know you may be right about the OTA download. I started noticing the data usage about the same time IOS6 was dropped. I have yet to get an update notice on my phone, but that may be from being jailbroke. If that is the case I wonder if it will eventually stop???

i question the same thing. even now it is still doing the same. even with an OTA update, it shouldnt show 800 megs each time it has a wifi connection. iOS6 i believe itself is between 800-900 megs.
