    Hey guys,

    Have any of you experienced unaccounted data drain after updating and restarting your windows 10 phones?

    I had a scheduled restart last night and as I was using it, it kept asking me if I wanted to change the schedule. I allowed it to keep the update and restart schedule.

    Then I noticed that it was a few minutes the scheduled time. I went to the update settings and hit restart now.

    It kinda froze in the restart process, so I just held down the power button. And then it restarted ok. Installed whatever it had to update.

    I check my mobile data usage to find that 2 GBs has been used.

    Aside from my frustration because I was certain that I had mobile data turned off and my home WiFi on... How much data does a win 10 update normally take? 2GB seems high.

    And the other thing that confuses me is, when I checked my usage details, I see 600+ MB Facebook and 200+ MB Microsoft Edge.
    I don't use Facebook that much and when I do, I make sure I'm using WiFi.

    Anyway, has anyone had this kind of experience before? Is there something about windows phones I need to know about?

    I'm gonna have expensive phone bill.

    User... Do not create multiple threads on your issue. It actually works against you as any advice gets scattered around and a coherent conversation cannot develop as easily...

    Dupe threads? I was sure I only created one.

    A anyway, turns out that just need to restart my phone. The metered data indicator was incorrect. The update glitches it.

    I think I accidentally hit submit thread by accident when I was typing this message. Damn keyboard kept dropping and I hit the submit button before cancelling in time.

    Sorry bout that.
