I've been having a few problems on my Galaxy S2 these past few months (i.e. every month except the first--coincidence or TM mojo?). To list them (sorry, a bit verbose)--
In any case, I've never had these issues when I was with Verizon (I'm a fairly recent convert and this phone is my first with TM), so I almost want to blame the network and/or this phone. I love this phone, but these issues are bugging the hell out of me! Has anyone experienced similar issues? What should I do?! I realize going to the store might be a good idea, but I wanted some sugarless responses first...
For the data consumption problem, load an app like Onavo which logs what's eating your lunch. Have you tried a factory reset for the other issues? If not, back up your important data and follow the instructions on the support document you will find by doing a search for 'factory data reset' in this forum.

Hey! Thanks for your reply! I've unfortunately tried the reset, but the only thing it did was erase my photos. I haven't tried Onavo so I'll jump on that, but will that help with the core issue?
It should identify the app responsible for the high data use. You will have to decide what to do once you have found it.
Just a friendly reminder, when people suggest a factory reset, a lot of times that is to end a corrupt program that could be using all that data. After you've reset, you would want to slowly add applications back on to see which might have done it. If you do a reset and immediately put all programs back on, odds are you just put the problem right back on the phone. Just a friendly tip when doing a reset.
Absolutely! Heads up to the moderators: maybe it would be a good idea to add that advice, including disabling automatic app reloading, to the factory reset document?
