iPhone uses 2+ GB in 18 hours???? HELP!

I could use some help here.

I just look at my iPhone's cellular usage figures, and it's showing that I've used 2+ GB in the past 18 hours. All I've done is some light websurfing, checked my email, and showed my daughter six minutes of youtube fairy tales.

Any secret settings I should look for? Some app that uses bandwidth when I'm not looking? What in blazes is going on?

Obviously some app was running in the background and sucking down the data. I regularly quit background apps for that reason.

Most often it's something affected by Location... a map that is updating, or something else. For example, the Maps application, especially when it's used in Satellite picture form, sucks bandwidth like a hungry Alaskan mosquito.

Were you listening to streaming radio and left it running in the background ?
