Looked at my text/data usage this past month and noticed a something I hadn't seen before. Every hour on the hour, something is sent from both my iPhone and my wife's iPhone to what is listed as "phone". No number given. Under type it is "Internet/media". Usage is anywhere from 5 to 200 KB. I have no idea what it is. There is no app that I leave running except a NOAH weather app. But why would that send out data other than location?

Any ideas?
