System services and iTunes accounts hogging data

    On my iPhone 5 over the past couple of years I've had iOS 6, 7 and now iOS8 but for the past 3 or 4 days I've seen an incredible amount of data being used by system services under cellular in settings. If I click System services I see that the culprit is iTunes accounts which I'm not even sure what it is linked to.

    Today, I was disconnected from wifi for just about ten seconds and saw that iTunes accounts went from 200kb of data to 16MB:eek:
    Granted, all the settings have been the same I had before experiencing this. i.e. no automatic downloads or updates and no iCloud without wifi

    Anyone has any suggestion to fix this? Please, I am at a loss here

    Not that it directly addresses your issue, but just to pile on - I had a similar issue, but with Time and Location services eating up a LOT of data. Oddly enough, that problem disappeared when I moved to my 6+ (off of a restore from my 5S).
