    I've turned everything i can imagine that uses internet off, and still my phone uses immense amounts of data.

    Where can i check what apps uses what and kill the application(s) that are obviously completely out of control?

    Thanks In Advance.

    All you need to do is in settings -> mobile network or cellular -> mobile data OFF.

    That's won't solve the "which app is using all my data" question.

    And whenever i want to be connected to say... Facebook (24/7) i need to turn that setting on again.

    This does not solve my problem.

    I can't find any "background apps" section in the settings...

    When you go to the settings swipe to the right, you will find background tasks there, then click on advanced to see all the apps that are running in the background :)

    Might be easier if you told us what applications you have installed

    I don't think there are any app that can monitor usage
    Only option is to install a proxy server (something like wingate) and point your phone to it, to see what its doing.
    That assumes that the problem exists on Wi-Fi as well as data.
