    That's an awful lot of data there, go through your apps and find this data hungry app and kill it.
    You didn't tell us what device and software you have, that makes it easier to give step by step instructions...
    Turn data saver on, don't allow auto updates or synch.

    Wow. I don't even go over 6GB in a month.

    Depending on phone model, you can go to network settings to see what app ate the most data.

    Welcome to Android Central! Agreed, it's important to know what app was using up most of the data. If it was an app that was malfunctioning, try speaking with your carrier's customer service, and ask if they can waive any overage fees, if all of that usage was unintended.

    Welcome to Android Central! Removed Apps is a catch-all of the data used by any apps you uninstalled within that data cycle. Removed Apps shouldn't continue to show data usage, unless you're uninstalling more apps (in which case the data from those apps will get added to Removed Apps).
