    Data usage issue...

    Hello all! Just got my new Atrix a on Saturday and love the phone. Super fast! My battery is lasting 1.5 to 2 days!

    I have a question about data. I looked around here first, used the search tool. Can't find any good answer. I am with AT&T. Have used to have a T-mobile phone, (the G1) for two years. I tracked my data usage before I switched to this phone and data plan (which is only 200MB) I used on average 100MB with my G1. Now in less than a week I have used 44MB! Just about 5 days! I know this phone has more things running and when I am at Home I have my wifi turned on and only use that to download or go online. I am not sure what to do to reduce my usage on this phone. I really do not use data at all during the data. I have only sent 10 texts (text only) do far and use gmail lightly (check email a few times send one email a week on the phone). I do have the HTC Sence clock widget (with weather) running. No social networks running.

    What is some advice you guys and gals would have to help me reduce the usage?

    Thanks! Great website!

    You can go to settings/ battery and data/data delivery/ social applications and check sinc over WiFi only.

    Welcome, Jedi!

    You can also check all of your accounts you have entered and extend their sync schedules. Set your WiFi sleep policy to Never (Advanced in Wireless & networks > Wireless settings > Menu). Make ure all of your apps that use data have their check schedules as manual or extend them as far as possible. You can also disable background data altogether if you want in Wireless and networks.

    Below is my past usage report details

    I see there are huge downloads. Like on 8/23/11 6:06AM - 14.3MB! what is weird I had my alarm set for the same time.
    Now I do have my Battery set to Maximum battery saver mode. By waking up my phone did it sync and download everything from the nights updates?
