I would love to read the article you posted but it refuses to load correctly. I guess this explains why we went over our 15gigs only after 10 days into the billing period.

To check your phone, go to Settings - Cellular - and scroll down to Unused Apps. You will see how much fantom data usage is added to your plan.

We’ve gone over our data cap for the last 2 months; I attributed it to international travel in January and picking up our New Aire last month in Nappanee...I do see the unused apps using over 4GB of data, not sure over what time period. But I’m sure not gonna scrap my iPhone over this. My Apple products have been the most reliable things I own.

I don't find an "Unused Apps" in my Settings>Cellular. I do find an "Uninstalled Apps;" is that what we're talking about? It shows a small amount of data use(?), but the number doesn't seem to change. I thought that number was the amount of data related to apps that had been uninstalled but was retained in case you reinstalled the app.

I'm using an old iPhone 6S, so you guys with the newer phones may have something different.

You are right TJ. It is UNINSTALLED APS.

Verizon charges $15 per GB of data if you go over the limit. No small change

I’m sure Apple will fix it. I’m not sure I’d go tossing an $800-$1,200 device in the trash unless it were an issue that persisted for many, many months past it being identified and Apple being made aware of the issue. Every piece of technology has its issues.

Mine also shows about 6.4 GB by Uninstalled apps in the last 19 days, if that’s accurate. another article here Seems to have a rational explanation about this and I’d suggest it might be worth resetting your statistics and making sure you don’t delete any apps and see what happens to this usage figure. Uninstalled Apps Are Using Data On My iPhone! (No They're Not.)

Immediately after resetting my statistics I now show call time current period of zero minutes and lifetime of 19 days four hours. I think the article I referenced above is correct the amount of data used by uninstalled apps it’s probably for the lifetime of the phone, not during a recent billing period.

I believe you...and, the linked article...are correct. If people are constantly installing and deleting apps, I think they'll see larger numbers.

I don’t see than, what is the practical purpose of that being there?

To measure the data usage an of app over a specified period. Reset your statistics. Check back in a month for example.

My "Uninstalled Apps;" is 112MB and my Netflix is 122 GB but I have an unlimited plan so it doesn't make any difference to me. I do understand if you are on a plan that has limits on the amount of data. The first month that I had an overage I went to the Verizon store and updated my plan to unlimited plan and my bill went down 8.00 per month. The only negative I have found is that from day one is limited to 680KB max hotspot speed. I also found that I can hook an adaptor to the phone lighting connection that goes from lighting connection to HDMI and watch all the videos I want on my TV without any. restrictions. I also added my IPAD to the account for 10 bucks a month and the hotspot on the IPAD is NOT restricted to the 680KB limits that the phones have.
