    Is it just me, or is the L928 using up data really fast? Especially when I share with my tablet.
    Its early days, so this isn't very scientific (give me another solid month) but I've never blown through data like this. I hope it just from fiddling with the phone! ;)

    I dont think it does. I have only used about 350 mb since release. I have 17 billing days left though. Also for most of the day ( work ) im on network.

    Update:

    Just checked verizon.
    928 = 358Mb
    Account = 0.533gb
    4gb plan
    Cycle ends the 06/06/2013

    I'll just have to watch it carefully next month and see how it goes, I guess. Thanks, carajean!

    Assuming you are using the phone on VZW, use the data sense app and slide to the right to see exactly where your data is going. It's app specific.

    check with Verizon to see where they show a sudden spike in your useage if this is not the norm for you. A friend just got the 928 as well and NEVER uses much data and 5 days later he is over his limit and they told him that today alone he had 6 hours of data use..which he did not. They were going to spike his phone to see if that fixes the issue if not he will get a new phone. The other thing that could have happened is if you downloaded all your apps to the new phone while not on wifi, this would affect data as well I believe.

    I haven't noticed any spikes at all in my data. I just checked the data for all of the devices on my account and I am right where I should be.

    No problems here either. According to Data Sense I've used about .4gb which is normal for me as I like to stream music. I'm on a 6gb share everything plan and the other 2 smartphones on the plan use less than a gig per month so that leaves me with 5, so I'll be well under my limit.

    I had this issue with the Blackberry Z10 when I tried it for a week, I blew through 4gb is 4 days not streaming music. I ended up returning the phone after a replacement did the same thing. VZW was nice enough to credit my account and not charge me a restocking fee.

    No problems. In fact I have used less data than Android phone over past two days even with streaming Nokia music.

    lisainsf,
    Yes, I had the same thing happen to me when I switched from unlimited to plan in December, which is why I'm a bit concerned (I hadn't touched my phone for 4 days and somehow used 10+GB. !!!). In that case they fixed my incorrect data usage somewhat, but I still ended up paying to much. Next month all was good. I'm about to go into a new month for my billing cycle, so I'll watch it carefully. Thx.

    I was streaming music for a few hours on Tues, which is when I noticed a possible spike in my data - that's what triggered this. Thanks for the responses.

    Just switched from Sprint to Verizon so I am very nervous about being limited to a 6gb plan with 3 lines! Just picked up the 928 so I will be watching my data like a hawk. Any suggestions from you guys so I do not get shocked by my first bill?

    just make sure what apps are using push notifications and what apps are using background processes. Other than that you'll be fine.

    Is the phone new to you? I noticed I blew through a couple GB just after I got it. I think it was due to all the updates. I would keep your eye on it and check next month. Other than that, like others said, use Data Sense to see which app is using all that data.

    Keep this in mind if you're coming from a different WP8 device - if you backed up your prior phone, and you restore to this phone, depending on how many apps you have installed you could easily blow through your data. My restore was 2GB on my first 928 (coming from an 822) and 1.7GB on the second 928. Make sure you're on WiFi doing the restore.
