Data Usage of specific amount of 450MB 46 times since start of new billing cycle

I seem to be going over my 100GB wireless internet usage every month.  After looking at AT&T's logs for wireless internet usage, I found that on 46 occasions since Dec. 3, I have specific "450.0MB" usages on it, which is 21GB in and of itself!!!!  I would like to know if anyone else has experienced this and if you may have found out what could be causing it.  Would be nice if AT&T would provide the TCPIP address of the device using their data.

I just had the same problem today. Over the course of 2 hours, 12 gigs of data were used up in 450mb and 150mb chunks, only on my phone, and not on anyone else’s phone on our plan. Extremely weird. Let me know if you have or even haven’t figured out why…

Supposedly it may be an Instagram bug after some more research, so maybe turn off cellular for that

My wife's new  iPhone 13 Pro did the same thing on December 30th. We need to find a solution to this!

Mine is doing the same thing. Apparently it artificially creates a need for data.

Yes. It has been happening to me for 2 years now. No one can help me and we can’t figure it out. Only thing connected is a PC and nothing is being streamed. Device is an AT&T

2 of my 4 lines are showing mystery 450MB downloads multiple times in this time period. we're over our plan for the month and have already been charged a fee. The weird thing is that this is the FIRST time in over 20 years that my wife has used more than 2 gb in a given month. she NEVER goes over the plan. But this month she's showing 16GB of usage and there's about 8 of the 450GB downloads in the Usage data... and at really weird times, too like in the middle of the night when she's sleeping. Same thing is happening to my younger son except he also has a ton of 135MB downloads as well... mostly at weird times that make no sense.

I have a ticket in but im dubious anyone cares. However, if they make me eat this overage charge I'm definitely switching carriers next month.

I just had this happen to me this morning after a weekly reboot. Used about 7Gb of data before I got a usage warning and turned my mobile data off. I was connected to wifi the entire time.

Same thing happening here. 450 mb and 135 mb chunks. Did anyone figure out the cause?
