    Nexus 4 using mobile data even when mobile data is turned off

    Hi, i am having a problem with my nexus 4. i use wifi at home and i never use mobile data cause it is expensive so i turned off the mobile data in settings>more>mobile networks and when i am connected to wifi and when i open certain apps like maps, play store or facebook i see a location symbol in the notification bar for a sec and i get a message from my network provider that i am charged some amount for mobile data usage, the usage is between 1kb - 4kb always. i am losing a lot of money like this. i think when i open these apps they are using mobile network to get the location and that is what im being charged for, but since i turned off mobile data shouldnt these apps use wifi instead i have android 4.4.2 and i am only seeing this problem since 1 week no problem before. is anyone facing the same issue too.

    Go to settings- location- mode and check "device only" you have it set to use data to locate you.
