Optus keeps sending me messages that I’m using extra gigabytes when I am not using that much. Just now typing this message I have already received 2 text messages that I have used a whole extra gigabyte when I only just received the exact message less than half an hour ago again telling me that I’ve used an extra gigabyte for $10. There is no way that I have used 2 gigabytes within half an hour! I do not have anything in the background that would be using data and I have been watching Netflix but I have data free mobile streaming activated and I am using it within the correct and appropriate guidelines for data free. Are the messages I’m receiving an error?
Sometimes the data usage alert messages can be slightly delayed, so I wouldn't assume you've used the data between those two messages, but may have at some poiny prior.
I'd recommend logging into Optus MyAccount or opening the Optus app - you can see a breakdown of where your data is going.
