I currently have a Verizon IPhone 4 and recently upgraded to IOS 6 via the Apple Update.  My problem seems to be that after upgrading my data usage has spiked.  I normally use between 100-200 mb per month since my phone is mostly connected to WiFi. However after the update it shows that I am par to use about 1gb of data for this month.


My plan covers that amount but I think that there is data leak when updating to IOS 6.  My wife’s phone is still running IOS 5 and has not had any issues with the data usage.  I know that Apple and Verizon released a patch for the IPhone 5 to correct a similar issue but wondered if Verizon is aware of this issue happening on pre IPhone 5 devices. 


I have made sure to close all open apps, disable location services/push notifications but my phone continues to download around 1mb every hour.  I have also disabled the ICloud application.  The temporary fix I have is to connect to WiFi then disable Cellular data via the Settings menu. Please provide any tips, tricks or updates as I would not have to switch cellular off and on while using my phone.

iPhone 4, iOS 6

    Where have you been hiding?


    A carrier update was released for Verizon a couple weeks ago to specifically address this issue.

    Frankly, your posting is pointless, a simple search of the forums or google would have told you to update the carrier settings.

    I benefited from your post. Thank you for sharing. Diesel, you need to learn how to distinguish the number 4 from the number 5.
