Apps that run in the background run when you're not using them; when you're using an app, it runs in the foreground. Restricting background data on an app prevents it from using cell data in the background or when you're not using it. These apps can still use data in the foreground or when you're using them.
To restrict foreground data, you will need to disable cell data for all apps on the phone, either by placing the phone in airplane mode, or by enabling Data Freeze in the Republic Wireless app.
