    For the first time ever I just turned my data off, I thought usage looked a bit high and then I noticed since about 3 hours ago another 8 mb had gone, I only get 250mb a month so it could get used up really quickly.

    I suspect its a live tile issue ? and it's only done this since Mango, I had already been into background tasks and only have Network Dashboard and Your Orange with a green on beneath them, other apps in background tasks are, Poynt, Pulse and WPCentral but they all have a grey off beneath them, any one had an issue like this ?

    Just want to add that my data is being used while i'm at home and wi-fi is on and I have just uninstalled Poynt and Pulse.

    I know there was an issue with the HTC Hub leaking data like mad a while back. Can you turn everything off and back on one at a time and see if anything rams up your use?

    Cheers Pronk, I have uninstalled a few apps that could be using data in the background and I havent really used them for awhile, I am keeping an eye on it for now but your suggestion is a good one and I will try that next.

    How do you measure your usage?

    I'm on Orange and use the Your Orange app to see data and minutes used.

    I just noticed the same thing today. Ever since Mango, something is eating data like crazy, don't know if it's just the Live Tiles or what????

    It's not a Live Tile issue, something else.

    Yes I dont think its a live tile now, I am still losing data but my latest thoughts are that maybe its the linked email inbox, I have 4 accounts and they were all set to sync and download every 2 hours, I have set them to manual and am keeping an eye on data usage, I havent used any since doing this this morning, so fingers crossed but should know by tommorow morning.

    I wonder how much data(if any), do Live Tiles use up?

    Very true, so I went back and turned off all the LOCATION base feature on all the apps, that I knew for sure had it and found others. I really didn't notice the Data leak until yesterday, after a few updates in Marketplace for some apps(just can't remember which ones)

    I turned off all of the LOCATION base apps, last night, sorry to say, still something else. It's a leak somewhere, right now checking each app that have Live Tiles & Toast features within the app(I'm a wp7, etc)

    I havent lost any more data since I put my email to manual, not saying this is it for everyone but it could be mine.

    Glad you found the source of your issue. I will now go through the process of uninstalling every app and add one by one, until I find out what it could be.

    I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling every app on my phone and my greatest fear came to life-it's Mango with the data leak. So I will do as suggested and back everything up and reinstall Mango, hopefully the second time around it works. Still loving Mango regardless!!! Waiting on my Nokia with Mango(dancing like a fool!)

    It's a carrier specific app from wireless provider Orange. It's like "My Verizon" on Verizon. It gives you account information.

    hey guys, dont forget that in the settings there is a feedback option. This killed my data. After disabling it I went back down to normal
