@donovancarr: Yes, anything on the Internet uses mobile data unless you connect over WiFi. Only calls & texts are not data.

Hi, @donovancarr,

 

If you mean which apps use up data quickly? Facebook/youtube/google-play music are the worst! 😊

I think its a more nuanced question than that. Some providers zero rate the data for certain apps and services. So, for example, WhatsApp or Messenger use doesn't affect your mobile data allowance on Virgin. Netflix data isn't counted on Three etc.

 

Outside of the Apple music promotion, I don't think EE offers any inclusive use.

Hi, @Techhead,

 

The 'apps' I mentioned do use a considerably amount of date, and are a huge drain on batteries too, but other 'apps' aren't so data hungry!
