    Is it possible for a phone to use mobile data when it is turned off?

    My GFs phone has supposedly used 2gb mobile data in a week, and it is turned off.

    Asleep? Yes. Turned completely off? No. Many people confuse "my screen is not on" with the phone being off, which isn't the case.

    What does this have to do with mobile data being turned off?

    Serious question.

    Is it an Iphone?

    My kid's Iphones use data even when on wifi.

    The only way your phone can be turned off is by battery removal. They have made these new phones to where you can't remove the battery- to help Big Brother out. So, yes it's possible.

    Again, what does phone being on/off have to do with mobile data being used while the use mobile data setting is turned off?
