Default [Q] Higher monthly invoice through flashing ROMs?

Hi folks,

I know that the thread title may sound strange and kinda noobish to some of you but it is meant serious. Well, I'm a flashoholic and I'm changing my ROMs fequently.
The last three months my invoice was higher and it was statet that this is caused by using mobile network. The point now is, that I don't use mobile network, I only use WiFi at home for online actions with my phone.
I've checked the details of my invoice in my provider account and there are listed small amounts for data usage that are adding to a "15 bucks more" sum per month. When flashing a ROM, the mobile network is activated by default at start up but of course, I'm switching it off as fast as possible. Maybe that could be the cause but I'm flashing ROMs since I've got my S3 and things like this never happened.
I just would like to know if there is someone who has faced equal problems, as strange as it may look like.

- Cheers

Instruct your cell provider to disable GPRS on your account, then you can't use any data.

Nobody searches. Nobody reads the first posts or titles of threads. Nobody even looks at posts a couple above their own.

Or remove your sim when activating.

I'm a linux user and smug about it, this is your problem not mine.
