I have a Google Pixel (2016) and I haven't used the data yet. Actually I haven't turned data on since I started using public mobile (data usage> mobile data is off as far as I can see). But just today I got a text that I'm close to using all of my data, and when I checked online, there's only 5 mb left. Has anyone experienced something like this?

@chu_chu check to see if developer options is turned on. Settings - system - advanced - developer options - mobile data always active. Turn it off. If it isn't this, please let us know. Thanks.
Thanks for the reply. I don't think I have 'developer options' enabled. Could this still be the problem?
Thanks for your suggestion. I can see that there are apps listed as using data. But I am pretty sure I never turned it on. This is strange but since I don't have an explanation, maybe I really did turn it on and off by accident at some point.
It's that many phones have a feature to "failover" to cell data if wifi data becomes weak or disconnected. Oddly it seems it's only possible to turn that off in those developer options in Android.
