Re: Verizon overcharging on 3G4G Hot Spot devices
It sounds like you have some sort of issue. Of course they're going to tell you data could be sent or received unless it's powered off. That's just covering themselves because there will always be some data sent back and forth. The device and the network are going to be in occasional communication to keep the connection alive and to check for software updates and things like that. It won't hardly amount to anything though. I can kind of see what you're saying about being at a distance and not having a good connection. It could cause lots of packets to keep being resent which I guess could possibly cause it to look like you're using more data than you're actually receiving. Not totally sure about that though. The network should get an acknowledgment once you've received it which is why it would stop resending it... so it knows what you do and don't get. Besides that, if all your devices are turned off then there shouldn't really be any real activity going on.
