    If I leave the 3 mi fi switched on but not being used (pads switched off) am I using my data allowance?
    Mi fi is password protected.

    No, no different to leaving your router on at home and not having the computer on, just using electrical (or battery) power that's all.

    If you have a Huawei mifi, you could download the Huawei app "Huawei HiLink" to your phone or tablet and this shows how much data you have used. I find it very handy as I have the 12 month 12 gb payg sim and it shows me how much data I have left before I need put my second sim in the mifi.
    Just search "Huawei HiLink" in Play Store if you have android.
    Should say that you have to have your Phone or Tablet connected through the mifi before you can monitor it!
    I had to have a fiddle with the settings on the App as it seemed, by default, to want to set a usage limit.

    This shows how it works.....
