    Friends -

    I support a small group of ALLTEL 650 users. Some of them experience A LOT of missed calls when the phone spontaneously goes into data mode (and calls go immediately into VM). I have pretty well determined that this relates to SOME 3rd-party software, as "virgin" 650s never exhibit this behavior, and I can hard-reset a troubled unit, restore to a new username (sidestepping the restore of 3rd-party apps), and the problem goes away.

    Has anyone else seen this problem, or can anyone suggest what app might be initiating a data connection without ANY screen indication?
    thanks in advance...

    Chatteremail does this, but the LED goes red.

    Both of these programs can be set to "auto-update" -- if users have set a high (frequent) update setting -- the data line could be busy and/or remain connected after the update is completed.

    I have both of these programs set to NOT auto-update:

    1. I do not need the information update until I am ready to read. . . .and,
    2. The NOT setting saves big time on battery drain. . . . .

    There are probably other programs out there that have the same "get" setting. . . . .
