Default [Help] android os data drain

Hey
It started yesterday and android OS has already drained 105 Mbs of data from my cellular network
That is, with Background Data restricted

What can I do to save my modest 700 mb 3g connection ?

You can analyse your traffic with e.g Traffic Monitor app and restrict data connection for apps using a firewall like droidwall.
Traffic Monitor show you Data usage per installed App.

There is a firewall that works without root. It acts as an VPN.
