After installing the app, a message appeared on my phone saying there were 83 weeks of data to synchronise. How much data is involved in this process? I don't want to exceed the data limit for my phone.
Also, 14 peers appear to be connected. While the app remains open in the background, how much data does connecting to peers require over time?
A comment against the app in the Play store says:
During the last 4 weeks, Bitcoin Wallet has consumed 166 MB of my data plan, 160 MB of which was running in the background. I am pretty sure that I had once set it to only transfer data in background when Wifi is on and it had been running smoothly like that for about 1 year. For now, I turned of "Sync on Power" and I hope this helps for now. But I think you should re-introduce the "background sync only on wifi" setting.
That gives some idea of the quantities of data, but it doesn't split it into what's required for the initial synch and the ongoing connection, so my question still applies.
