    Welcome to Android Central
    Go to settings > data usage and look at what apps are using the most data. You can set most of them to not use data in the background.
    You should also turn off auto updating of apps and auto backing up of any pics over mobile if you are currently doing that. Set them to do so only when connected to WiFi

    The OS shouldn't be using much data. Mine has used 4.1 MB all month.
    Try turning off mobile data when not using your phone. It's a hassle, so you might want to try out an app called JuiceDefender that does it automatically. After a few days, see if the issue is gone.
