    There used to be an option on the 700p somewhere, to select the network to always stay active.

    Can anyone tell me how to keep it active on the 755?

    Thanks

    I don't know if you can since the change to EVDO. There is still the option under Phone Preferences to always connect to the Network whenever the phone is on, but that is no guarantee that the Network will actually stay connected. It still seems to time out after a period of non-use. I believe that both Sprint and Verizon have done this to reduce Network overhead, and they only way around it to have an app (Causerie, Chatter, etc) that will poll the Network at a semi-frequent interval. This is just my opinion based on my experience.

    700p. I assumed it would be the same for the 755p under Network Preferences......if not, sorry about that! But try going to Network Preferences, then hit the Menu button. Go to Options, and select Preferences. The first choice should be "Connect to the data network whenever the phone is powered on."

    Yeah, as I mentioned, any app that polls the Network frequently should keep the connection open. For example, Causerie can be set to poll from every 5 sec all the way through once every 10 min, or you can set it to Smart Mode, either Slow or Fast. Fast starts polling every 10 sec, then 20 then 30. Slow start at 10 and stabilizes at 60 sec. I am unaware of any utilities made for this express purpose, though.
