Thanks for watching my back Cleoriff, I'll keep in touch & let you know what happens. I'm keeping a close eye on everything & checking my usage every few hours & so far so good

Re: Boy Have I learnt an expensive lesson

Hey Folks,  FOUND IT .  It was Sky News who used 7.91GB of Data running in the background overnight. So have unticked the box which allows the app to use mobile data whilst running in the background, d'you think this'll help, can't think of anything else to do at the moment but i'll give it some more thought tomorrow, or could it be maybe that i did'nt close sky news after last looking at it last night ? I don't know, my mind's befuddled now will look again tomorrow but in the meanwhile thanks all for your help today

Re: Boy Have I learnt an expensive lesson

I think you have done all you can for now @Montysmum 

Apps should only be updated over Wifi. My mobile data is turned off unless I am out of a WiFi area.

See how it goes but I'm sure your data usage should be better now. wink

Re: Boy Have I learnt an expensive lesson

That's a serious flaw in that app but well done for finding it.
There are other news apps available so I'd be deleting it and using something else personally.
