Why is Messenger using up so much data all of a sudden?
kmisas

In about the last 30 days, messenger has increased my data usage exponentially - from an average usage of .05GB to now 1.5GMB.  I am not really doing anything different than I was before.  I had to buy more gigabytes so as to not go over my plan.  Was there an update that changed the usage?  Are there any settings that I can change to stop this?  This is really frustrating.

Which application are you referring to?

We want to look into this more and make sure that these data sessions are correct, Krzykrl96. Have you been using the group texting feature lately? Is your Messages+ application synced to a computer or cloud service and constantly being updated? Have you verified that the application and your device are running the most current software update?

I have not been using group text anymore than previous months, maybe even

less. I don't believe it is synced to anything. And our phones recently

downloaded the new upgrade but it was using lots of data before that.

The software I am having issue with is Message + as well.  I don't use group texting hardly at all.  I have received the latest software update.  One of the settings was checked, continuously send location.  I unchecked that hoping it would help, but not sure if it will.  I would appreciate any help you can offer.
