Default Android OS killing my data package

It seems that Android OS is using a ton of data. More than anything else on my phone.
I only have an 8gb package with Verizon, and the OS has used 800mb already.
How can I find out the culprit?

Try a data monitor app from the play store.

My guess is, as always, something to do with location services, or at least an app using location services.

Try turning it off completely for a day. And see how it is then.
