    Data usage

    Data usage 17th Jul 19 at 5:31 PM
    Have temporarily transfered to ID mobile. 30 day SIM comes with 10gb of data. Am not particularly using more data than usual but am noticing that according to the data counter on the I'D mobile app I am. I used to have 6gb with another provider and used to get to around 4.5 to 5.5gb per month.

    I've heard other people mentioning ID and it's data being used up very quickly.
    Thoughts anyone?

    Is it significantly more? Any new apps installed working away in the background?


    What have other people said might be the reason if you have heard this before?

    What handset do you have - it is possible to install an app (if there isnt one already on there) that can estimate data usage per app.

    Hi, I’m id too (9gb for 10) but I am consuming the same. Check the usage per app.
