Sounds a lot like an Exchange account struggling because it can't reach the server or there is some other communication problem there. Expired password, etc.
If you have any Exchange accounts set up, try deleting them and see if the data flow returns to normal.

1 Mb per minute is a huge amount of data. That is unlikely to be Exchange. Security on Exchange would also preclude any kind of data being passed if the server couldn't be reached or there was a bad password.

Did anyone get an answer to this. I've used 11GB in the last week, when I used to use 2GB per month
I've not changed anyof my usage behaviour And my provider O2 can't help

Iphone 3GS. updated to iOS 6.0.1 Friday. Data usage until then about 300MB
Sunday Morning around 4am. Phone incredibly hot even though connected to charger and home Wifi network. Usage exceeds 3GB for month and extra 3.5GB. Total usage in 12 hours 6.5GB.
Sunday afternoon after receiving message from AT&T about excess data, turned off Cellular Data and 3G and limited to only Wifi.
Monday evening 2GB cellular data. Total data usage in 2 days 9GB????? W/T/F ???
Even when 3G and cellular data is turned OFF, 2GB used up?
Now, turned OFF Cellular data and Wifi and using it as a regular phone with texting and calling. Maybe will buy a regular phone and be done with all these useless charges. Someone should be held accountable here.

Since you don't bother telling us what you've done to troubleshoot the problem, we can't help you much.
Restore as new.
I'm betting the last one will fix it.
Something is corrupt in the backup used to set up the phone or restore it last. That or the phone is jailbroken.
