Have a look at this thread, and others. I typically use 200-300mb. My husband (who was on that 200mb plan previously) typically uses about 70MB. We went over this month. And did NOT have LTE.
and DAILY my phone is using small bits of wifi on data, while the phone is asleep, and any time I update or download an app. Lord only knows what would happen if I updated the phone itself.
There's a lot of talk going on about it, and yes, I wonder when AT&T will officially respond. When I called them, they suggested turning off data. NOT a solution at all.
There's a few threads on macrumors as well about this.
Turning off cellular data may not be a solution but it will prevent your iphone from using cellular data when you don't want it to. Call it a workaround until the problem is solved. You can always turn cellular data back on when you want the phone to use cellular data.
I'm just curious as to why you expect AT&T to officially respond when it is an iphone problem, not a network problem. There is simply no way for AT&T or any network carrier to control whether the iphone is using wifi or not. This problem is being reported by many iphone users, including Verizon users. Apple has even issued two supposed "fixes" specifically for Verizon but users are still saying they have the problem.
