So it turns out that Yahoo is leaking data when it makes calls to its servers to the tune of about 25x more data than is needed to retrieve emails. A bit scary. But it’s worth noting that ‘the’ infamous data bug for WP7 may not be Yahoo. See, Yahoo is a bug but there may be others. It may also be that people don’t understand what happens when they turn off their phone with wifi on. Unless it’s plugged in, wifi turns off and data kicks in. That may also be a ‘bug’ but it’s a feature…depends on your perspective.

Anyway, if you care aboutt he amount of data that your phone uses and you’re using Yahoo you’re now aware of a possible data leak. But this story likely has more legs to it still…
