Why has my data use increased with my new smartphone?

Upgrading to a Smartphone

When you upgrade to a new Smartphone, you may find that it uses more data which will use up your credit faster.

If you don't need to use data on your phone, you can turn it off completely. You'll need to look for the settings to do this (look in your phones user guide for more information).

Control your data usage

Things such as weather and news apps can cause your phone to check regularly for updates, which can use your credit up quickly. You can prevent this from happening by closing down apps when you've finished using them, and by changing the settings so that your phone doesn't update as frequently. You will need to look at the user guide for your phone to find out how you do this for your specific handset.
