Just opened my plan today... Data all used

So I just started on my own plan today... literally four hours ago, and I just got a notification from Verizon that I only have 3% of my monthly data of 5GB left!! How in the heck does that happen?! Is this even real? Is it just a mishap by @verizonwireless ? Has anyone else experienced this?

You can easily go through 5 GB in 4 hours. That is an average of only about 3 Mbps to do that. That is well within the capacity of LTE. 

What were you doing? 

4 hours of video can do that, background downloading of apps can do that. 

Re: Just opened my plan today... Data all used

Did you update the OS to 13.1? That alone can be over 1 GB to download.
