We actual can not help this cape is standard in WP 8.1. but for some it's not 20 but 50 or 100 mb.
So if you have access to WiFi please use WiFi.
There is a work around but than you need a second phone. In the second phone enable wifi sharing and connect you phone to this WiFi now you can download apps .

First of all your account should be always xyz@Hotmail.com / xyz@Outlook.com

1) Goto the this link via PC (https://account.microsoft.com/devices?refd=account.microsoft.com) and remove your window phone from the list and click on Remove Phone Hyperlink Button. And logout the account.

2) Reset Your Mobile. (Settings->About->Reset)

3) Re-Login your Microsoft account in window phone not in pc.

4) Goto the Store and Open Settings Turn-Off "Only get updates over wifi".

Now you can download games or apps less than 90 MB.
