    I recently bought a lumia 925 and am struggling to reduce my data consumption. i tried to inactivate background data but to my disappointment apps on my live tiles such as Whatsapp i couldnt access them!! Setting the monthly data limit doesnt really reduce background data usage, but just helps to track usages. i dont download videos or audio files on my phone just web pages. with my old nokia e72, i would really not notice the data usage.

    There are ways for example email: Don't use as items arrive...try to schedule it on a per hour or whatever suits your need also in WP8.1. Have you figured out what apps are sucking data? If you do you can probably limit them using the apps settings.

    We all have a tendency to keep our data on, even when we are not using it. Stop doing that. Only use your mobile data when needed. Considering you use internet explorer for browsing, go to settings >data sense saving>high. This will highly compress the pages that you load. In uc browser, there is speed mode, it compresses around 70-80% web pages
