Phantom Data Transmissions on Windows 7 Phones

The BBC reported today that some Windows 7 phones are sending and receiving a large amount of unwanted data. Reports say that some phones are transmitting and receiving up to 50MB of unknown data a day:

“I went and looked at my AT&T account online and noticed that my phone was sending huge chunks of data seemingly in patterns.” Another said that they had noticed that the phone’s “idle data usage is around 2-5MB per hour”.

Microsoft is looking into the problem and will release more information as it becomes available.
