    I think you are overthinking this. The most likely culprit is an app which downloads data in the background e.g.

    When e-mail is set to "push" your device is constantly checking for new e-mails and downloading them automatically. Change your settings to "manual" and get e-mails only when you want them. (Source)
    Does he use any of these apps?

    It isn't.

    App Store apps can only read and write to the file system within their own sandbox. They canít examine other apps, nor the data of other apps. There will never be third-party antivirus software in the App Store so long as the sandboxing rules remain in place. And so long as the sandboxing rules remain in place, there shouldnít need to be.

    We can argue about whether you should run anti-malware software on your Mac. But it canít even exist on non-jailbroken iOS devices. (Source)

    It isn't.
    I have an iPhone 4 on a sim only plan with 500 mb data, 300 mins and unlimited texts and I have about a third of those apps ( ebay, facebook, shazam, whats app ) along with other things, I do disable push on the email side and set it to manual

    My bill has never exceeded my alottment for each month by much ( unless I enter those sms competitions ) like on the gadget show or the likes, even still I have never had a bill for £158 etc

    I pay about £12 ( give or take a few quid ) per month

    Another option could be Imessenger, I know I go through tons of messages on there and if him and his mates are messing around pulling faces or whatever it sometimes switches from wifi and sends it as a normal text message if him or the recipient are not connected to wifi or even 3g.I Still think it imessenger is buggy.
