    OK - forgive my ignorance but I have a very simple question. To log onto the web, you must be in Wireless Mode and also connect to the internet -two separate operations. When you're done surfing, is there any way to exit from the internet without exiting the wireless mode? I still want to make calls, I just don't want to surf or (pay the associated data charges).

    I reccomend the Treo600 Connection Manager. It will automatically disconnect you from the internet, and not interfear with your WirelessMode.

    WirelessMode is basically wether your your phone's Transciever is on or off.

    To get Treo 600 Connection Manager go here:

    Thanks for the tip. So there's no feature in the Treo itself to manage this? To end a data session, I really have to shut down the "wireless mode" and turn it back on if I want to make or receive calls? Seems like a bit of an oversight by Handspring.

    If you're not actively using data, you can make and receive calls. There's no need to turn off wireless mode first. And unless you're actively using your data connection, you shouldn't be charged for it either.

    You can disconnect the wireless data services manually by going into Preferences and then Network. Select the "Service" that is running and then click "Disconnect". You can connect in this way too.

    HTH,

    I just found another way, while in blazer you can press Menu >> Options >> Disconnect

    Also, like Jennyfur mentions there is no real need to turn the data connection off since it does not interfere with the voice connection and GPRS data usage is charged per MB rather than per minute as with some dial-up services. I suppose turning data off could save some battery

    With the Connection Manager app I mentioned above I have noticed my battery lasts longer. I do alot of quick internet checks during the day. (Hi I'm TavisJohn and I am an internet addict...)
