When I get my phone bill, despite my effort to not use data-hungry apps such as Google Maps, I still see an enormous number of frequent but small data charges. It looks like some app is making a data connection to the roaming network to identify any updates, but without some sort of monitoring app, I can't tell which is the culprit.

There are plenty of apps out there that will tell me overall data charges, but I have yet to see one that will tell me which apps are responsible for which data charges...

If anyone knows of such an app, please tell me!
Instead of looking for an app, try this: open network options and turn roaming data off.
