On NYE I had my phone (htc m8) in my pocket, no apps open, and somehow my data was usage was completely used up in a 5 minutes, plus 10$ in extra charges.

What on earth caused this to happen??

This was caused by an app using data. Perhaps music, videos, or background downloads/updates.

You can usually check what used your data in Settings > Cellular Networks (May also just be called Data Usage)
