Hey Mohamed,

Auto updates are usually the cause of airtime being used up faster than normal/expected. To turn off Auto-Updates do the following:

1. Open the applications menu...
2. Tap Play Store (or Google Play Store)
3. Tap the Options or Menu button at the bottom right - tap Settings
4. Uncheck both the "Auto-updates..." and "Notifications..." check-boxes (remove the green ticks by tapping)

5. Go to Home
6. Open the applications menu...
7. Look for System Updates and tap it
8. Tap the Options or Menu button at the bottom right - tap Settings
9. Uncheck both the "Auto-updates..." check-box (remove the green tick by tapping)

You will then done!
