Blackberry Help 5: Random data charges???

Number 5 in this series of Blackberry How To**


Noticed some odd daily data usage and at random times. Could it be Opera Mini or maybe LogicMail? Ok 5 cents per connection isn't much but it's annoying considering it's only 5 cents to download a whole MB. I'm not even doing a full download.

Tried to stop it by wiping the APN Setup
Options -> Advanced Options -> TCP -> APN: [Blank]
Nope didn't work.

Just tried turning off data services.
Options -> Mobile Network -> Data Services [Changed to OFF]
Fingers crossed this will do the trick.



** More as a memory jogger for myself rather than for any greater noble purpose

mine looks surprisingly similar, except I have unlimited data so it's not charging me 5 cents a whack :

06/02/2013 3:10 PM UNLIMITED DATA & EMAIL 0.3
06/02/2013 3:08 PM UNLIMITED DATA & EMAIL 0.1
06/01/2013 5:44 PM UNLIMITED DATA & EMAIL 5,327.0
06/01/2013 4:20 PM UNLIMITED DATA & EMAIL 2,373.4
06/01/2013 4:19 PM UNLIMITED DATA & EMAIL 454.9
06/01/2013 4:19 PM UNLIMITED DATA & EMAIL 3.

this probably doesn't help in the slightest, I know. Maybe it's talking to RIM ?

Thanks, turning off the data solved the problem.
