Mobile Data used but phone is only connected to WiFi

The mobile phone arrived yesterday a week late! I set the phone up and connectted it to the wifi first.

 

Since yesterday 6.71MB of WiFi has been used. How can this be explained. The phone has remained inside the house in the same room as the BT router (with super fas tbroadband).

 

Has anyone got any ideas?

If its connected to WiFi then I would expect to see some data usage. Things like apps being updated, and other background tasks.

6.71mb is not much usage on a broadband connection.

If you're using Android if you go into wifi and advanced settings from memory, check wifi on during sleep (depends on the phone) if it's off and your phone is locked it will revert to mobile data, if it's already on, could be an iffy connection
