No one here can know more about that BlackBerry than you, Rick, except your son.

Yes, there are apps that will automatically use data, depending on settings. And there is overhead data useage regardless. The amount of data used in a session and the regularity (or lack of regularity) of sessions might give you some idea of what is happening.
