    Is there any program to automatically shut off the internet data service in case it is accidently left on? I am on a pay as you go plan with Verizon and I'm worried about leaving it on when I use Directory Assistance or other utility the requires a network connection.

    Appreciate any help provided!

    this is a great idea, even for people with unlimited plans! Continuous data use really hurts battery life.

    How would such an app work? Would you want it to disconnect every time you switched applications? If it did that, you would need to reconnect in order to go from one internet app to another (like from email to web). That could get annoying, IMO.

    I think a lot of people would like the idea, just not sure how you would properly implement it...maybe someone has ideas about that though.

    For a manual solution, there is a DA which I think is called netconnect (something like that...I will look for it, I have it somewhere but don't use it). You could then use a DA launcher (there are several) to qucikly launch it and disconnect when desired.....faster than going into prefs to do it.

    You're not actively sending or receiving data if you're not using an app that does, so it's probably not necessary anyway when your connection is idle...little if any data is transmitted which means it wouldn't affect your bill

    Having unlimited data, i'm with you, but I could see how someone who was paying by usage would want to be sure it was off...

    I've always used TreoHelper's Drop Net function for that.

    Look for it on Mytreo.net. I'm set to 1 min after screen shuts off to disconect me. It also allows me to schedule turning on and off my radio (phone). Hope this helps.

    battery dr. automatically kills connection when you want it- for instance I use it because I don't have a data plan, but it connects for mms, and then when its done I hit the end call button and it terminates the connection

    Does Drop Net in Treo Helper work on the 650? The read me says it's for 300's only. The green, gray arrow settings dont seem to apply to the 650.

    Yes the Drop Net in Treo helper also works for 600 -650. and It's totally free

    Well, TreoAlarm can be set to check the time or the weather and not disconnect afterwards .

    It's not automated but I use Hi-Launcher. It has a 'Network Toggle' function that you can place as one of the items on your menu. So when I want to disconnect I just press my hardbutton #2 (launches Hi-Launcher) and then press 'N' on my keyboard (you can link letters to launch items on your Hi-Launcher menu). Works great for me.

    Yeah, PalmarySoft just released a new version of PalmaryClock, called PalmaryClock Wireless Edition that does that (weather and atomic time, as well as currencies) as well.
