Flying from Gatwick to Las Vegas

I have been charged £35.00 extra for data usage. I was flying to Vegas on the day in question, apparently I used the data while over Norway. I didn't use my phone, and didn't fly over Norway, can anyone explain please?

Thanks for your reply.
Hard to believe, didn't use my phone, just didn't turn roaming off.
Must have just been minutes as, the satellite must be like a speed camera for the phone companies.
They offered me £20.00 refund though

I's easy to get caught out with these charges unfortunately nut glad they refunded some of it for you.
