I'm guessing you're using an iPhone with iMessage. If you don't turn on SMS in it then you will use data if not connected to wifi.

As well as apps not updating, check that the OS won't update in cell data.

 

Edit: also check that you don't have the wifi failover to cell data option on.

Make sure to disable auto updates for apps and turn off GPS.

@B_ride make sure your phone isn't syncing your photos and uploading it to the cloud over mobile data
