    Is the T600 an "always on" unit? I hate the way my T|W has to connect everytime I want to send an email or use wireless features. My i705 worked faster because it was always connected. I hope the T600 is the same.
    thanks

    Is just like surfing the web or checking e-mails at home back in the old days , if you are connected 24x7 then all your calls will go to voicemail. No broadband capabilities here, yet.

    My P800 would disconnect GPRS after a set amount of inactivity (no data transmitted) to save battery life. Is there a way to get the Treo600 to do this? Only way I have found is to manually go to Prefs->Network and choose "Disconnect." Is there no way to automate this?

    Honestly, I can't think of a good reason to EVER disconnect from the network. Why would you want to do this? (kind of defeats the purpose of having an always-on connection)

    ... from the carrier's point of view, there's plenty of reason to disconnect you. In some regions the carriers don't have enough "simultaneous connection" capacity - so they're dropping GPRS connections after some period of inactivity, or in periods of high demand they're playing "round robin" and dropping folks who have only be inactive for a few minutes. That's happening on Cingular here in Raleigh, NC. Wreaks havoc on your apps that expect GPRS to "just work"...

    I wasn't talking about disconnecting from the entire network. I was just talking about GPRS disconnecting (un-attaching). My P800 would still send/receive calls, but would have to "re-attach" GPRS. The advantage was that battery life was GREATLY increased & the disadvantage was that it took the extra 5-10 seconds to "re-attach" GPRS when I wanted to use the data services.

    Yes, you can do this with the Drop net settings in Treoehelper...
