data usage on windows phone - cannot identify what is causing spikes in data sent

Hi,

 

I have recently acquired a Nokia lumia 900, great phone, but I have noticed my data usage is much higher than my wife's Samsung Focus flash.  

 

I am on wifi all day at work, and when I get home.  So at most I am off wifi 2 hours a day and that is driving to and from work. 

 

When comparing her data usage to mine, I see some strange things.  

 

For instance her average sent data size is 40 - 55lk, and this is consistent all month long.  On my phone, I see a lot of 4100KB - 5500kb sent at times when I should be on wifi. 

 

I have location services on, but so does she. 

 

I have most background tasks turned off and only have email checked every 30 mins.  

 

I am already at 60mb of data usage for the month and I rarely if ever use the phone when not connected to WiFi.  

 

Any thoughts/suggestions are most appreciated! 

 

Thanks!
