    excessive data usage

    I recently got an HTC one s and the first months data usage of 5GB was used in under 2 weeks, I assumed it was just from syncing all apps and settings that were carried over from my Sidekick 4G. However the next month my phone had went through about 2.25 GB in the first week, and the vast majority was from Android OS. Just to be safe I disabled all auto sync features and disabled background data for major offenders (facebook, gmail, weather, etc.) Then went to OS features and disabled all services I consider non essential, yet the data has already shot up to 3.7GB in less than a week, and android OS is responsible for about 3.3 GB. I have disabled all background data which has slowed it to reasonable data usage but many apps are essentially non-functional now. Please help with suggestions that may provide happy medium between obscene data consumption and a reasonable level of functionality. I just don't see the point of having such a slick expensive phone if it will only reasonably operate at the level of non smartphones

    Mine did the same after a month or so of having the phone, I resolved the issue by carrying out a factory reset, since then it has been okay data usage wise.

    Another good to is to install an app like Android booster that monitors the data usage of the device. It will also tell you which app is causing it.

    I downloaded Onavo count and it said that Android OS covers media and streaming etc.. so I suspect that a download has possibly crashed and is on loop, therefore carry out the factory reset and see how it goes.

    The folks at Opera Software have created Opera Max (http://opr.as/i0y) It uses a unique compression algorithm so you save data and eventually extend the life of your data plan!
