I had a crazy bill from Verizon this month and couldn't figure out why I'd allegedly gone over my data limit. It appeared Spotify had ysed a whopping 1.62 GB of data for the month -- according to the screenshot, only 115 MB of that was foreground data and 1.51 GB was background. I've never seen this before. I've since restricted background data just for Spotify, but I shouldn't have to do that -- I also don't know how it will affect my ability to stream. Seeing this issue on a number of other threads so I would really like to see it resolved considering it affects my phone bills.
