Default Mobile Data keeps turning itself on!

Hey, so I already checked the Sensation forum and found nothing of this sort, so I'm just gonna ask.
My Sensation XE keeps turning the mobile data on, all by itself. I've checked my apps and nothing that uses mobile data. And that bad thing is, I keep getting charged for it! I turn it off, and after a while, it turns on automatically. Help me out please?

Go to settings and then scroll down to sync . This is where you have control over what you want to sync in the background and what you don't want to sync you have full control use it

I have weird bug like that that keeps turning Bluetooth on! What Rom are you running? One reason data will shut off is if its not available. Have you tried another radio and ril? That might help. Never found what's turning on my Bluetooth? Very strange. But I do know with data it will shut off when not available.perhaps it's signal issues. You can try a new radio and ril and see if issue still persists. It's worth the experiment. Could solve the issue.

Funny thing is, since I don't completely use to phone to myself, it's 100% stock. And it's really weird for a thing like this to happen on stock.

Yes it is strange, because you are stock it even more so confirms it might be a signal issue. Some solid advise. Call your provider and let them trouble shoot your device and See if your signal is getting disrupted this would cause the shut off . If so, make them do something about it! If possible. I have T-Mobile and I know they will trouble shoot a signal if need be. That's the only thing I can think of that's causing the data to shut off. When I installed a different radio/ril to my device I had the very same issue. I solved it by flashing a different more compatible radio and ril for my Area. But since you're stock, see what if anything the provider can do for you. Or you can root and try to change things yourself. If that's not an option take it in for warentee exchange because a device won't work without data and something needs to be done to solve the issue! Really hope this helps. Best wishes.
