Default Background Data

My Network Carrier allows me to use facebook and whatsapp free. So in settings I enabled restrict background data and then started surfing respective apps but later I saw 'android os' is still useing background data. So how can I desable android os to use my data and only allow fb and whatsapp to use. Please help.

if ypu are rooted, install a firewall app, I reocmmend AFWall+, since it will allow you to grant internet access to apps based on connection type (for example in your case, you can grant android OS access to internet on wifi, but not on 3g)
