    Default iPhone 4S Cellular data turns on automatically
    I just checked and the cellular data switch in my iPhone 4S is ON. So i turn the switch off and lock my phone. I immediately unlock the phone and go back to Settings -> General -> Network and i see the cellular data switch back to ON. I have no idea why it is going back to ON, on its own.
    How to find root cause and solution ?

    Edit: Looks like iCaughtu pro was enabling data when wifi connection was not available.

    Because the current phone where i have iCaughtu pro is installed has an International SIM card and that phone never goes out of the home. With international sim, the data rates are obscenely high so want to avoid that. I have kept data roaming off for that reason.

    Did u try looking at the settings of iCaughtU Pro and turn off "Force 3G" it actually turns on the 3G whenever theres no internet access. Have u done that??

    Yes Force 3G is off, what i observed is that if Force 3G is off then EDGE is activated (which i am fine with). I tried this with my local TMobile SIM card which has EDGE service available and in my area there is no tmobile 3G for iPhone in my area.

    Hmm.. I've run into several post/thread that have this kinda problem and somehow it did also mention iCaughtU Pro auto enabling cellular even if u have it turned off. Take a look at these posts

    Hopefully it helps. Otherwise if the app is really important and u need it yet worried of your mthly bill. I suggest find an alternate iCaughtU Pro.

    I saw the thread, it has only one mention of the icaughtu pro. And yes there is some method mentioned. What i have found myself is that if i turn on wifi for some time (even if there is not actual wifi connection/pairing, i can turn off the cellular data off and it stays that way, then after some time i turn off wifi and the cellular data stays that way until the next time i enter a wrong passcode which sort of wakes that tweak and it enables the EDGE data when no internet is available.

    i found the solution that may help

    search cydia for Data Blocker and Data Toggle and install 'em
    that will prevent automatically data turns on.

    I recently had the same problem with my iPhone 4. I removed iCaughtU and a few other packages because I didn't know what was causing it. My data usage skyrocketed to something around 400-600MB a day and my battery life was **** as well. Anyone know why iCaughtU would be using that much data?
