hi...i have 4s and i was looking through the phone to find out what the heck is using my cellular data...
So here's what i'm using:
NOTHING...
My e-mail acc are set to manual check...notifications are all off...location services are all off...in icloud option everything is set to off...facetime is off
All my app are closed with the home button pressed twice and closed so there is no application running in background and still...
When i go to General-Usage-Cellular usage i see that sent and received are working A LOT...
I don't wanna turn off cellular usage i just want to know what can drain internet when everything is closed ?

Any help ? Thanks

Did you go into System Services and turn those settings off? Settings>Location Services>System Services (scroll all the way to the bottom) I have every one of my system services off.

I had something using a lot of data and it turned out to be an app. But, closing it in the background like you've done did stop the usage. I wonder if you have one that still uses data even though it is "closed"?

How about bluetooth? Also, turn off automatic downloads in Store and see if that changes anything. (Or rather turn off "use cellular data" Settings>General>Store

How much usage are we talking about here? I suppose it is possible that you have a corrupt app that's using data. Give us a little more here please.

I'm not trying to belittle your concern here... but it really just sounds like a drop of spilt milk that you're worried about. I do, however, understand your desire to know what's causing this "minuscule" usage.
