Data usage on iPhone 5s

I bought my iPhone 5s from Koodo on Friday and it's telling me that I've already used 95% of my data. I shut it off immediately but don't understand how I already could have used 500 mgb in just two days. I don't use my Apps, email, Facebook, etc. that excessively that it should already be almost used. I'm concerned because I don't want to go over, but for the amount of time I use it, the lady at the Koodo store thought I would be totally fine with 500 mgb per month. Please help!

If you go into the Cellular settings, you will be able to see what applications have used mobile internet.

Your iphone might have been automatically updating/refreshing apps in the background. Go to settings>cellular>turn off apps you don't want to have access to data. :)

iPhones are generally data hogs, but like what's been mentioned, iOS 7 introduced the feature to control which apps use your data, which is nice.
