Question What's Using the Internet?

Please Login to Remove!

Appreciate some help on this one.
On last month's phone bill there were numerous (about 6 to 8 in any 24 hour period) short connections to the internet from my wife's BB. As she has never downloaded an app in her life I'm assuming it's something that came with the latest software update is calling home. So 1) how do I find out what's calling and 2) how do I stop it. This is costing us money Thanks.

@ Midnight Draven

No - she uses it for fairly basic phone and diary / appointments.

Thanks

oh, theres goes my idea out the window.
Does she ever use data of anykind? internet browsing?
If not, options - mobile network - data services: OFF

This should stop it.

If she opened any data app such as IM, web browser, etc and then exited out without closing, then it could be using data. As MD said above, turning data services off should fix it.

Thumbs up

Thanks guys. She's not a big mobile internet user so that provides an easy solution.
Cheers
