Hello there nosferatu2xlc! Thanks so much for using your Data Usage tool at My Verizon. I love that feature. I recommend any customer with a smartphone do the same as you are! The data usage is calculated at the close of connection. So the 110 mb that you show for 3:15 is all data reported to have been send/received by your phone for a browsing session that ended at 3:15. The same is true for the 5 mb later in the day.  We calculate data based on measurement of info we show transmitted by your phone on your line. I hope that helps!
