Missing data time stamps

On my bfs data usage it shows the normal every 3 hour time stamp then all of a sudden it will show 4kb 5kb or 6kb then the time logs will skip 12 hours and start again. It does this all the time. Sometimes it will skip 6 hours, 4 hours. But no data usage will show at all. Why would it do that?

Data is reported by different towers at different times and maybe reported by partner towers delayed as much as 72 hours.  The data reported in the online usage report is not live, it may be batched, or it may show small amounts of data.  

   It's not unusual for data to post in the usage report overnight in batches when phones are no longer connected to the mobile network because they are on Wi-Fi, or the phone may be turned off. 

If you're trying to find some correlation between live data usage and when it's posted on the usage report, there isn't one.   

The only thing that matters is that the data usage tallied independently on your phone each bill cycle should be very close to the data AT&T tallies in your usage report during the same bill cycle.
