How can we help you? If they are legitimate charges, we can't do anything. You would need to pay them!

If ur on a low plan and say ur overages are way over ur plan. Try upgrading to a plan with alot more data in it. Yes ur base plan will be higher. But it will save you in overages

Learn to tame some Android data hogs:
1. Make sure your Google play store preferences are set so that updates only happen when you are on wifi, never over mobile data.
2. Instead of Google Maps, use HERE or MapFactor Navigator. These allow you to download your map data on wifi ahead of time instead of always doing it on-the-fly using mobile data. All of North America requires about 4 gig of space— enough to ruin anyone’s mobile allotment over time for no good reason.
3. Download a data switch such as Farproc so that you can easily toggle the data use on your phone.  By default my mobile data is turned off unless I need to use it [i]now. Not too much point in getting constant notifications and emails till you are ready to deal with them. Once you’re off the road, you can use wifi or turn data back on to catch up quickly.
