    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...

    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...

    Data drain when plugged in and locked!

    Oh! Another thing! Opening a file in Pages with wifi on takes longer than with wifi off. Also, with wifi off there is a pop-up that states something about comic sans in the document. It does not do that with wifi on.

    Data drain when plugged in and locked!

    Hey J.A.! The laptop is unplugged. Has been all day. So syncing with iTunes cannot happen. Since this ONLY HAPPENS when iPad is plugged in, I do not see why there would be a problem with emails or their delivery frequency. When I plug it in with wifi on, I can just sit there and view the...

    Data drain when plugged in and locked!

    Hey It is happening again. My iPad had been plugged in and on all night because I downloaded a huge app. I wanted to check out the Walking Dead game and it is almost 300meg so I started download during free data time. This morning I checked the download and it finished. I checked my data...

    icloud drive!

    Thanks! I'm thinking that you are talking about what was installed in my browser when I logged into iCloud.com Next time I get on the PC I'll get rid of it. I do not use my PC anymore except for lately .

    icloud drive!

    I tried deleting the folders from my PC - no luck. I clicked on them and the trash can was not available. I did go through everything and turned off cellular everywhere. I do not have a cellular account. I did install the iCloud app on the PC. Do I need it to get to my iCloud account...

    I do not have a cellular account. I have another post in the icloud area. Maybe you can help me?

    icloud drive!

    My original problem was with data draining. I deleted my icloud account from my ipad and the problem went away. I was stupid and wanted to verify that it was icloud because I have emails stored in the icloud account that I need. I reactivated icloud to see if the emails were still there...

    Data drain when plugged in and locked!

    Ok, thanks! That is a pain in the butt, though. Why oh why does it keep that stuff when it is deleted? Makes no sense to me. I think that I can stop bothering you now. Thanks so much for your time and help!!!

    Data drain when plugged in and locked!

    Yes, it is still the same - 845 meg. All but one of the remaining email accounts are completely empty. The one that has email in it only has 30 emails which are really small - mostly a screen of text.

    Data drain when plugged in and locked!

    Oh! Cool! I did not even think about that! I'll give it a try! I hope my folders are still there. OK. Another question. I have hundreds of megs in the folders in the iCloud mail area. They are from my other email accounts. The iCloud area is the only area where you can create new folders to...

    Data drain when plugged in and locked!

    Yes, all emails were successfully sent from all accounts. I hardly ever use iCloud mail accounts. I recently went through all of my email accounts and checked all of the folders and deleted everything in the Sent and Trash folders and checked all of the other folders. I did that a couple of...

    Data drain when plugged in and locked!

    I do not have any other Apple devices. It is not draining data anymore since I deleted my account. My last iCloud backup was in May. I tried several times after that and it never finished, so I gave up and turned it off. Maybe iCloud was stuck somehow? That last successful backup was 1.2 gigs.

    Data drain when plugged in and locked!

    I do not use cellular at all. I have iCloud backup turned off. I just deleted my iCloud account to see if that does anything. The only thing is that all my folders in iCloud mail are gone. Will I get them back if I log in again? I just tested plugging it in and locking it after deleting...

    Data drain when plugged in and locked!

    I have turned everything off - automatic everything - background everything. Every time that my iPad 3 is plugged in and locked and on wifi my data starts draining. When I unplug it, it stops. This is driving me crazy! I updated to 8.1.1 last night during my ISP free time. I thought the update...

    Trashed emails keep coming back

    I thought that the new update this morning would fix this, but it has not. I have to trash the emails several times before they go away permanently. Especially the iCloud emails. Very annoying.

    iCloud - What a joke!

    Yup, wifi is fine. I tried last night twice. Both were incomplete. I have fazed out my laptop and only use the iPad. Maybe I'll start looking into other tablets that are not dependent on a computer or laptop. With the iCloud and iTunes backups you are never certain about what exactly is...

    iCloud - What a joke!

    Waited up for free download time to do iCloud backup for my iPad 3. Turned it on. Took forever to give estimated time. Finally gave estimated time for less than 1GB. 22 hours! Give me a break!

    iOS 7.0.4 is out now

    You do not seem to understand. I usually do downloads during the free download time, BUT I cannot do that when Apple automatically does the download without my knowledge. I did not know that there was a new update. I did not start the download. Apple automatically downloaded the update. I just...

    iOS 7.0.4 is out now

    Yes, I am on wifi, but I only have a certain amount that I can download. I have Hughesnet.

    iOS 7.0.4 is out now

    That's the pits! I don't have an unlimited plan. I resent Apple taking it for granted that it can just download and use up my allotment. Thank goodness this one was not very big, but the first 7.0 was huge. I did not even know that another update was coming! Thanks for the info.
