iphone causing super lag?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Ever since my sister got her iphone I've been experiencing huge lag spikes on my home network. Nothing else changed and this only started when she got her iphone. How could such a crappy little device be using so much bandwidth that it causes lag with a 35mbps up/down connection?

I have read of someone else with this problem. The phone was doing some type of backup.

There's a wifi sync feature. She's not using that, is she?

Could be iCloud too.

I just logged into my router and the iphone is connected to the network so I'm assuming she is using the wifi.

Can you view how much data the phone's using?

As far as I know, these things take up alot of bandwidth.


-Wifi Sync. This doesn't actually use the internet, but it may be stressing your router with all the data moving between the iPhone and computer.
-iCloud. If it's new, all her data's probably getting backed up.
-iTunes/app downloads. Alot of games are half a gig or bigger.
-Siri. If she's playing with it alot, thats it.
-Youtube/Netflix.

It doesn't show me how much data it's using unfortunately. If I disable wifi on her phone will it mess anything up?

Nope. You could always turn it off.

You could turn it off 1000 times in a day and it wouldn't bother.
