Have you tried to turn off the sync? By default it will sync your contacts, calender, Picasa, etc. What about social networking updates: Facebook, Twitter, etc. Pop3 or Gmail? Are you using any call filtering programs that may not be disconnecting calls? GPS or network location? Google Maps? All this stuff eats data and this is a VERY data hungry phone so it could be coming from anywhere really.
Alright, here's how the things are.
Nexus is one hungry son of a phone!
Service provider couldn't tell me much, except that all the money went from my account due to GPRS (data) transfer.
Why? Who knows, this and that.
Now the only solution is - watch the damn thing (it's traffic, NetCounter proved to be good for that) and keep it off 3G/2G networks, unless you're playing with it (ApnDroid is excellent for that), keep all the syncing manual.
It uses data whatever you do, all the time, GPS positioning (it probably can be done without data traffic, but with 3G enabled is like 100 times faster), updates, syncing, everything.
So, my advice besides above said is, buy a good or unlimited data plan from your provider or sell the phone!
I love my Nexus, it's one damn good phone, even my girlfriend is jealous of it but we have to be careful with the data transfer...
Thanks to you all guys who participated, take care, good luck, and one of the coolest punch lines I've read (from WaveSecure, especially cool cause they provide anti-theft solution) - 'May the phone be with you!' :D
Hey guys, just btw, yesterday I stumbled across an awesome app, for stopping data (3G/2G/GPRS) traffic.
It's only a widget (which you can add to your homescreen), but does a job perfectly! (unlike apndroid, which made me have to reset the phone every time after switching the traffic back on)
Small, free and excellent - 'Toggle data traffic'.
Keeps your phone bill normal!
