Let me guess, your mobile data don’t last that is why you are probably reading this post. I mean, your 6GB data don’t last you up to a week and you are probably wondering maybe your network is scamming you.
If you subscribe more than 3 times in a month for data that is supposed to last you for 30 days, then something is wrong. No download, no streaming, but just little oshaprapra on Instagram and your data appears to be gone; then something is wrong.
There is probably an app running at the background of your smartphone consuming your data.
From my little findings, if your applications on smartphone auto-update, it will consume your data, if you frequent Instagram, Facebook or Snapchat, it will consume your data… and even background apps consume data a lot that is why your battery doesn’t last long.
