GPRS data"units charged" What does it mean
I have the GoPhone prepaid plan with the monthly data plan. When I look at my account history I see GPRS activity that I am unaware is happening. It appears that data is being used, sometimes every four hours like clockwork. The Timezone ranges from Mountain to Eastern and even American/Puerto Rico (the phone is in Pacific zone). Data units charged range from 0 to 10000, usually less than 200. Amount is always $0.00. Call location is none. What is this????? I have very few apps turned on to use data. Could this be something in my iPhone System Services that is checking in, like location services, or an app like Find my iPhone?

Hi there @PatinCambria,
I would be happy to assist you with your usage details on your GoPhone account!
GPRS is the abbreviation for General Packet Radio Service- A packet-switched technology that enables data communications. Data usage details are delayed and usually updated in 3-4 hour increments. In short, all data usage is clumped together in 3-4 hour increments and usage details are then updated on your usage logs. The cost is $0.00 because you have a data plan on your account. If you go over your data, the usage would start showing an amount.

Thanks for your reply. Further question: why does the location show units charded in Mountain time when the phone and usage is in Pacific time? Occasionally it shows a listing for Puerto Rico?
