Is there any way I could disable the system services that use data when I am not connected to wifi?

Well, as long as your iDevice is not jailbroken, sadly there is no way to fully do that, but you can disable some of them here:

Settings > Privacy > Location Services > scroll all the way down to the bottom > System Services

System Settings

(At least with the iOS versions up to 7)

This is for location services, not for cellular data usage. These options have no impact on the system services shown in Cellular/Mobile. –  George Garside Jun 11 at 14:00
    
"Well, as long as your iDevice is not jailbroken, sadly there is no way to fully do that, but you can disable some of them(=System Services) here" He'd ask for disabling System Services, didn't he? I told him that there is no way to fully do that. –  Silas Rech Jun 11 at 14:03
    
OP asked 'disable the system services that use data' — the system services in that list are for location services and are unrelated to cellular data usage. –  George Garside Jun 11 at 14:05

You can't select which system services have access to 3G from that page. Many system services' data use can't be switched off—only the services themselves.
