Re: More Proof that All Data Plans with Overages Are Bad

This goes out to all the AT&T fans that thought AT&T was perfect.
I saw an extremely high amount of usage on my phone when I wasn't using it / was at home with wifi available. Turns out it was automatically checking my hotmail account, which had 20,000+ messages. It's primarily a junk account, but I was buying a home so I wanted to be alerted to new messages.
Just checking this account racked up almost 2gb of data over the course of a month. I don't otherwise do a lot - prior to enabling the account my usage was 200-500mb/month. Wifi doesn't help. When the phone is locked, the wifi is disabled to save battery. So it will do a lot of email checking on 3G even when wifi is available.
I disabled automatic email checking and got the message count of my Hotmail account down to a low roar, and my usage is back to normal.
Your funeral. Delivered.
