recently on one of my iphones I was getting large amount of data downloads causing it to go over its data limit even though the phone was hooked up to wifi.


This was happening with the phone asleep at like 1:30 or 2:00 am.  All the auto download on icloud, apps, tunes were shut down but it still kept doing it.  I finally went into my itunes account a saw where five devices were active for icloud even though on all but one device they were deactivated.


So I deleted them all and thought my problem was solved.


Today my daughter stated that icloud had downloaded a song on to her phone.  I went back into my itunes account and it seems it reactivated her phone and my computer, which I promptly shut down.  Nothing was changed on her phone.  I don't even know how to activate it at all on my imac and I am not even running the latest and greatest operatiing system on it.  I am on snow lepard.


Can anybody tell me why all of a sudden it reactivated the devices on itunes.  I can't figure out what could have triggered the re-activation.

iPhone 5s, iOS 7.0.2
