Hi support

I have a RUT240 modem running on a SIM card from Thingsmobile.com, and I wonder why I have a use of data.

The modem is configured as this: Wifi is disablet, RMS is disablet and nothing is connected to the LAN port.

The rest of the settings is out of the box.

I have a use of 0.65Mb every day.

Is there anything I can do to minimize the use of data? I known that its not a lot of data, but I expect to have about 100 modem running within a year, and then it will be a lot of data!  

Is the data used by the modem to keep connection to the SIM operator?

I hope you can help me with my issue!

0.65 Mb each day is very little data usage. You can visually see from where to where traffic goes, and maybe you could find where is data being used: https://wiki.teltonika-networks.com/view/RUT240_Graphs#Connections

To check that navigate to Status -> Realtime Data -> Connections

Also, I think you are using an M2M SIM card, which means some data is used to keep the connection to the operator and monitoring.
