    Jumping ship

    You said that most have unlimited data with their home isp accounts. This is not true. Several complaints sent to several isps specifically state that their accounts were drained. DRAINED. This is why the complaints were sent. I would like to know where you get your information as the true...

    Jumping ship

    After many problems and intrusions by Apple concerning my data allowance, I have decided to buy the Microsoft Surface 4 as soon as it comes out. If anyone has been looking elsewhere besides this forum, it has been found that Apple and it's iCloud has been a total mess. As a result, ISPs have...

    Broadband usage has rocketed since getting my iPad?

    It did not work. It started draining at around 10am today. I just make sure that I fully charge it either with wifi off or the iPad completely turned off and when I turn it back on, I leave it unplugged. No problems doing it that way. Maybe they changed the web addresses. Darn THEM!

    Broadband usage has rocketed since getting my iPad?

    I have been experiencing the same problem. All of a sudden my data allowance starts dropping and I have to turn wifi off. Once it was an update to iTunes. I followed the instructions in this link: http://ios8tips.com/how-to-prevent-automatic-update-to-ios-8/ It basically blocks the Apple...

    Data allowance drain again

    It happened again last night. My data allowance was completely drained by 02:00 am. Diagnostics and Data show a crash at 02:24 am. So far so good this morning, but I keep watching. I got a data refill and do not want to lose that too. This is ridiculous. As the data was draining I watched...

    icloud drive!

    Thank you Husq! I use TracFone. It is tons cheaper. With Verizon I paid $50 a month and lost the minutes that I did not use. With TracFone I pay a little less than $100 A YEAR. I have a triple minutes phone and always get the promo code for an extra 250 minutes which equals 1450 minutes PLUS...

    Thank you scifan57 and twerppoet I guess I'm SOL. I do not have a landline and my power company does not have wifi towers. I have been trying to get AT&T wireless, but they are all filled up and I can't get it until someone drops their service. They don't have a waiting list. They say to keep...

    Thakns again twerppoet I have Hughesnet sattelite service because that is all that we have where I live. All of the plans have limits. I wish that there were other options. Because there are no other options, I do not know anything about unlimited home ISP plans. Just for information purposes...

    Data drain when plugged in and locked!

    I do not want to double post. I do have an idea about what is happening and posted it in my post "iCloud Drive!" in the iCloud area.

    icloud drive!

    Upon further examination of the Usage and Diagnostics, I believe that iCloud, Numbers and Pages are NOT the problem. So, I apologize to them. I updated to 8.1.1 in the wee hours of the morning on 11-25. Problems with data draining started before that. There are 2 records in the Diagnostics for...

    icloud drive!

    OK I looked at the Diagnostics and Usage. When I saw the data dropping I briefly plugged it back in and then unplugged it. There is a report at 9:19:01 approx when I plugged it in then unplugged it. Exception Type: EXC_CRASH (EXCABRT) I have no idea what that means. I have noticed that...

    icloud drive!

    Thanks twerppoet I take it back that it only happens when plugged in. I unplugged it this morning then turned it on at 9:15 and by 9:20 it had dropped 36 megs. I will double check everything again

    icloud drive!

    I am still completely signed out of iCloud. I have always, from the very beginning, had problems with iCloud. The last backup was in May. I could not get it to back up again and gave up. That was only the second time that I had a successful backup since I have had my iPad 3 (which was delivered...

    icloud drive!

    Thanks twerppoet. The iCloud settings are turned off for both apps. iCloud is turned off for everything that has a switch. I checked iCloud.com and had to try several times to login. I did this during the data free time this morning. I finally got in and looked at iCloud Drive. I even looked...

    icloud drive!

    Thanks twerppoet I still cannot find what is draining my wifi data only when plugged in. It's amazing! I can just sit there doing nothing and watch the data draining. When I unplug it the draining stops! Does Pages and Numbers save anywhere else other than on my iPad? When wifi is off Pages...
