Thank you! I did this during the upload but was told TODAY by an Exede rep that it was not possible for me to do this. I was questioning how I had a jump in data usage at 5:30 am when all devices were turned off. She tried to tell me that others were using my wifi.. but again I told her I had disabled this feature. she basically called me a liar and told me to call back tomorrow
