Why do I still get internet notifications, i.e. Instagram, gmail coming through when I've turned my Wi-Fi off on my mobile? Also is this using my data?

Your phone will latch onto the most strongest connection type it thinks is the best. 


So if a person just wants to use a wifi connection and not a network data connection then it's advised to turn off Mobile Data in your phones settings or via the pull down shade. 


You can also set a preference settings in many apps on how they a, Send a notification and b, how they connect and update.
