How do I know if my iPhone 5 is using my home wifi or my cellular company's cellular data? 


My phone has been set up (connected) to my home wifi but I have no idea if it's using my cellular data plan or going through my home wifi.


I've had my phone for 2 days and burned through almost 1GB of data and I haven't been using it that much.


Is there something running in the background that is eating through my data plan?


Any help would be appreciated.



iPhone 5, iOS 6.1.2
