Large amounts of data

I just upgraded my phone from a 6s to a 7+ and all of a sudden my data usage doubled, I'm not doing anything differently than I was on my other phone, so how have I used 15gb data in less than 2 weeks?

Re: Large amounts of data


Your new phone will be using data to download and resync all your backed up data.

It should settle down when it's finished but stay connected to wifi whenever possible.

Re: Large amounts of data

Hey @Juliesam, as it's been a little while since you posted, I was wondering how you were getting on? Did the suggestions above help you understand your data usage better?
