Yahoo data sucking issue remains


Its been more than a month after Yahoo has been fingered as the culprit behind much of the mysterious excessive data usage on some Windows phone 7 handsets.  It turned out the problem was also not confined just to Windows Phone devices, but affected iPhones too.

One would have thought fixing this issue which could cost consumers actual money on data overage charges would be a priority, but Rafael Rivera, who was able to lay the blame at Yahoo’s door, reports that the issue is still persisting.

The easy solution is of course to pipe one’s Yahoo account into an alternate service such as Windows Live or Gmail, all of whom I am sure would be happy for the ad traffic that Yahoo would miss out on.
