My good deed for the day is to alert all to a costly problem that we have been dealing with on our iPhones. We have a plan for cellular data that was saying we were using 5-10 times the amt we know we needed. After changing phones, carriers, etc. the answer came today and is a problem many people are encountering. Turns out the Wi-Fi Assist is the problem that can be disabled, but will turn on again in certain situations. Family members were watching netflix on their phones while it was charging and even though house has Wi-Fi the phone switched to data! Outrageous!!! ATT&T credited us and did right by us but Apple is the one who put in these sneaky gadgets to take advantage.
