I have 500 MB data a month. So far this month OS has chewed up 226 MB. All when I turn on data to check Facebook and email for a few minutes each day! Rarely does OS seem to download an update in the evening or night, when I am home and on wifi. How annoying!

Are you talking about the Software updates or application usage? The two of them are VERY different things.

really not sure... I have My Data Manager and it says OS Services 226MB - 63.8% of my data used since Mar. 22
Facebook 69MB 19.4%
Internet 19MB
Outlook 16MB
everything else is small potatoes....

Software updates won't be done automatically. You actually have to accept the update for them to download.

It never asks me to accept anything... I can go on FB for a few minutes... check my data after and Fb has used 1 MB and OS 20 mb in the background somewhere???? I just don't get it!

In the same time frame... OS used 262 MB on mobile data, and 230 MB on wifi...
and I would be on wifi 100 times at least more than data, which I turn on and off 2-3 times a day for a few minutes...
