How to fix some mysterious problems.

Since October I've had an issue where when I have data turned on, my battery starts draining very quickly and my data usage skyrockets. The phone also gets pretty hot during all of this. There are transfers of at least 500 kb/s as soon as I turn on data and check the network usage logs. Even with every app closed data is still being used, so I'm led to believe it is a tweak that is causing the problem. Here's what I have installed:

  • Activator
  • AppCent
  • AskToCall
  • Auxo
  • Bars
  • BatteryDoctorPro
  • biteSMS
  • BytaFont
  • Color Keyboard
  • f.lux
  • FastBlurredNotificationCenter
  • Flex 2
  • FolderEnhancer
  • GlyphPatch
  • iCleaner Pro
  • iFile
  • JellyLock
  • Live Battery Indicator
  • Nitrous
  • OpenSSH
  • PrivaCy
  • Safari Download Enabler
  • SelectiveReading
  • ShowCase
  • Springtomize 2
  • SSL Patch
  • SwipeShiftCaret
  • WinterBoard

I'm using an iPhone 4 running iOS 6.1. Does anyone know if any of these tweaks are known to cause problems? Otherwise what's eating up all of my data? Thanks a lot!

Was your device jailbroken prior to activation via original carrier SIM card in iTunes?

I'm not sure what you mean. I have Verizon if that makes any difference.

Try temporarily toggling your cydia(mobile) substrate addons off with icleanerpro (rebooting between every change) until you find the culprit.
