There's a sort of known issue with WP7/8 that the minute phone is locked that the WiFi connection is terminated.  So any data requests when the phone is locked goes over 3G/LTE even though there is an available WiFi connection.  This was done to conserve the battery but according to Joe Belfiore this will be fixed soon, http://wmpoweruser.com/joe-belfiore-wifi-sleep-issue-in-windows-phone-will-be-fixed/
