What is your question? Do you have a plan with data?

You can either upgrade to a plan with more data or if on a SFD plan, can purchase a data top up, or you can cruise on the pay per use data rates.

Keep in mind that data top-ups can only be bought when you've reached your limit. A text will be sent to purchase more data.

@Ivan

Keep in mind that top-ups have to be or can only be used up within the current billing cycle.

J Doyle, for questions like that it is better to create a new thread. However to answer your question, make sure you disable data for any app you don't need to use data for. I personally downloaded the app Datally for that (by Google).

There should be an option under your cellular settings to specify which apps can access cellular data. Just turn off Google Play Store updates.

Did you use the data usage built into your phone or an app to track how much data it is using? Have you also disabled automatic downloads over cellular data? How much is it using thereafter?

No I guess it's going to use data when my phone isn't being used as long as I have data on some apps like google service can't be stoped even if blocked . I was just in town for a hour only on data and google used 0.57 mbs with the phone sleeping Just hoping 500mbs will last me until next month where it maybe running 2 to 3 plus mbs auto sitting idil

Go to your data usage and click on Google play services.  What services are using data?

From there you can find the root cause and deal with that specific service.

Maybe post a screen shot for us
