Where did all the data go?

Phone is Moto G Power with My Choice +1G plan.

I typically don’t need data, but want it on rare occasion. I primarly just use talk and text, or am connected to wifi. This plan eats up data even when I’m not using the phone. So I turned off the data. But in doing that I no longer get phone calls or text.

I used to have the buy back plan. With that plan I might use 17mb in a month. With this new plan it records that I’ve used 100s of MB with similar use.

Any ideas how to fix the settings so I can use my phone like a text and talk without my phone constantly using data?

Thank you

If you want to stop apps from using cellular data, but not affect your ability to call and text, enable the data freeze feature in the Republic Wireless app:
