Microsoft investigates Windows Phone data bug
Up to 50MB of data being sent and received a day for unknown reasons
Microsoft is currently looking into a mystery problem with Windows Phone 7 that appears to be causing the handsets to send and receive 3G data whilst idle.
The bug, which seems to be a US-based one, is storming through users’ monthly data allowances, in some cases chugging away 50MB a day doing nothing. Some users have noted that their handsets’ idle data usage is a huge 2-5MB per hour. Added up, it’s a problem that’ll run a 1GB data allowance dry in well under a month.
