I have 500MB data. I'm careful about not overusing it, as I'm usually connected to WiFi. In the last bill I found that I was charged a total of $25 in data for "Application Store Services". What does that exactly mean?

If you are seeing the "Application Store Services" on your phone, then it would be the app store.

As you said you are usually connected to wireless, if you have upgraded to iOS 9, go to Settings, Cellular and scroll to the bottom. If you see "Wi-Fi Assist" is turned on (Which it is by default), turn it off. This setting makes it so whenever the iPhone believes the wireless network is not strong enough, it will use your cellular connection to supplement it.

I heard about the Wifi assist a while ago and turned it off.  What application did I buy?

I mentioned in another thread you commented on but it could be anything from an app to a song. Have you bought anything on your phone recently?
