jm66210 - Hi! As a confirmation we'd like to ask, are you referring to a software update in a Samsung S8?
jm66210 - Could you please indicate, are you referring to the usage of data in your phone?
mind posting which update your phone is now on?
Ok, so this is sorta embarrassing, but strange as well. Took the sprint Tech 30 minutes to figure it out, so I dont feel so bad. Going through all menu's, everything was set as it should, but when we went to text messages, highlighted one, and selected all, then touched "notifications" at the bottom of the screes (there was a bell with a line through it next to the word notifications) everything went back to normal. Problem solved! DOH! 'likely a "butt dial" incident.
