VERY high non-wifi internet trafic

I have been a happy Galaxy S2 user but today things changed. I had an alert from T-mobile that I am close to reaching my internet package limit and they are slowing down my connection. The problem is that I have a 2GB limit! I checked my account and it showed that during 14 days my android phone downloaded over 1,8GB of data for example yesterday 1a.m about 375MB). It is my second android device and I know that during normal usage (mail sync, FB sync, news apps, weather, sometimes websites) I downloaded around 350MB od data durin 1 month.
I check the device with 3 different antivirus and everything was clean.
So is it possible that a system application has gone crazy? have you experienced similar problems?

restarted after few hours, don't have any data.

I'm just curious if it is a android bug... now I'm using traffic stats lite and traffic counter and still waiting for something

I'm curious.

There was another app. And as I see you found a third. I can't fix that busted app.

What I'm saying is, keep trying apps till you find one that nails it or gives up a clue.

Excessive internet usage!

I use 3G WatchDog. You can find it on the Market. Check all the reviews. It has helped people just like you. Let me know if it fixes your problem. Cool

horrible...hope this helps

that just sucks man...could be some rogue application mate....u really never know's gotta be trial and error...What you could do is turn off your data network when ur not using it...also you could try uninstalling applications which you think might be causing such behavior ( especially the ones which require syncing...). Anyways wherever be the result, do let us know what happens ....hope you find that rogue application before it blows a sizable hole in your data charges
