How can I possibly be using so much data on my iPhone. I usually listen to Pandora for about an Hour each day I drive to work. So far (the first 8 days of my billing cycle I have used about 1 GB of data. According to Verizon's calculations I based on this usage I should be using a total of about 1.5 GB of data/month. I called both Verizon and Apple and received no resolution. Apple confirmed that the Phone's wifi shuts off WIFI when the phone is asleep. Resulting in the phone switching to LTE. Apple also indicated that apps that are in the background tend to use data as well. This still doesn't make sense. I had the same data usage pattern (Pandora) with my old 3GS and only used about 1GB/ month. There has got to be another solution. I refuse to believe that just using Pandora for about an hour/day for 5/days a week results in a GB of data usage. Any suggestions?

iPhone 5, iOS 6.0.1
