Go to settings tab and make some changes in your Firmware update settings. Set it to Update over Wi-Fi only. This setting will prevent any firmware updates being done from your Mobile data usage. Your phone will automatically start updating when it will be connected to some Wi-Fi connection. Hence it will not use your phone data helping it to save.

Task killers removes all cached files in your phone. Browsers normally saves the webpages and several other contents on web in cache memory of your phone for future use. Next time when you load the same pages , it will be loaded faster by simply fetching from the phone memory. So if you use Task Killer apps , all your cached files will be removed from phone memory and everytime you visit some webpage it will have to be loaded from web and will cause more data usage.
