I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Firmware updates from the phone's manufacturer, updates from your service provider, software updates from applications installed on the phone, "phone-home" connections from applications installed on the phone, and so on.  Lots of things, many of them things that you'd think shouldn't be charged against your data cap.

This phone is from Q-link and they offer to sell us more data.
But how would we use data when the phone is not connected to the internet.
Or it is connected to the internet and if not how to?

Post back the Android OS version.

If your phone is running Android 6.0, goto Settings -> Data usage and you will see the total cellular data usage and the data usage per app (App usage).
