    Wanted to put this out there and see if anyone else had noticed this. BBM on the KEYone went from using ~9mb of background data in Feb to over 3 gig in March, and then nearly 3 more in just the few days since my monthly prepaid plan renewed.

    In the screen shots, I have Background data turned off, but that was after I saw it had used 3gb in just the last couple days.

    Anyone else noticing this? At the very least, it's something to check in your settings. I've tweeted at BBM and a few others but have not heard anything as of yet. If you notice yours using excessive amounts as well, take screenshots and tweet the same people I've tweeted below.

    I've got the same group and few contacts as well, so I'm watching this intently.

    Battery consumption and data both increased since latest update. Controlled battery through the power center.

    You say that as I'm finally cheering that they fixed the wakelocks problem I used to have - BBM isn't even registering in my battery usage. Data so far has been low too, and I'd like both to stay that way.
