Depending on the phone model, you can look under settings - cellular data - and see what apps are using the most data. You may want to look at some of the newer unlimited data plans. With autopay, many are the same price or cheaper that some of the old plans with limited data.

You mean the cell phone bill right?

You could switch to unlimited, which is competitively priced.  If you're still on a metered plan with overages, it doesn't make sense to stay on it. 

Look at your phones settings, under Data usage.  Your phone independently tracks use by application. Which ever app is using a lot of data should be restricted.

If you don't mean cell phone, you're in the wrong forum
