What can use data without my direct input?

I just changed my plan since I was not using much data. I have since stopped web browsing on my blackberry but my daily data usage still shows activity. What else uses data with this phone that I am missing?

apps. they can update and use data, or the use of some apps use data. also mms (picture messages) use data. web browsing is actually one of the activities that uses very little. see if you can set somewhere to only udpate apps when on wifi. if you use BBM (the blackberry messenger thing) i believe it uses data. not positive, but i think so.

Backup apps will use data on a regular schedule. Facebook is a data hog and seems to access the web on its own for updates. In fact, and social app is likely to do automatic updates to bring you current notifications.
