    I'm just curious to see how much of my battery is being used as a result of being connected on the data side. I know that I can go to Prefs, Communication, Network, Disconnect/Connect to manually change the state. Is there and app which would allow this with:
    fewer clicks, or
    automatically at a set time, or
    automatically after diconnecting from Blazer.

    If not, could anyone share with me what level of "battery burden" being connected on the data side causes?

    Why don't you just use the drop down menu in Blazer to disconnect before you exit?

    FOr the life of me, I cannot see any such choice under the drop down menu. Please help.

    When I hit my menu button while in Blazer, under the "Page" choice it's the 8th option down. You don't have that? It says "Disconnect"

    It's GSM only, My Pretty. If he's on Sprint (and maybe VZW) it's not available.

    Alas, on Sprint. No such option.

    Ahhhh...I'm sorry, I didn't know the carriers' Treos were so different.

    Yes, sad but true. My Sprint Treo 650 also has no such disconnect feature in Blazer. This was a big question mark in my mind when I first got this. How in the *&%^#@! do I disconnect?

    I found this "Reset NetLib" app. It's the same developer who did Keyshades (2 big thumbs up). When you launch Reset NetLib it appears to log off the data without
    logging off the phone.

    From the site:
    This application resets the network stack.

    It was developed for the Treo 650, but I expect it to work on any
    Palm OS 5-based device. It may work on other Palm devices that have
    a network stack.

    It can solve a myriad of networking problems that can crop up. The most
    common of these is the stack running out of sockets.

    To use, simply tap the "Reset Netlib" icon. The program will
    reset the network library. When the dialog box is acknowledged, you
    will be returned to the launcher.

    updated 11 May 2005 (new icon and fixes a bug where the network stack
    did not close when it was in the 'close-wait' state).

    Versamail also has a disconnect menu option.

    I suppose Sprint users don't have Versamail either ....

    I don't know about you guys, but my Verizon Treo 650 has a disconnect option in the Blazer menu.

    Yes, all Verizon phones have the feature.

    Why doesn't the red end call button disconnect the data call?!?!?! It did on the Kyocera 6035, and I thought that was the main reason for the button on the T650.

    Why don't we ask the developer of "Profiles" to include this? Would be very handy to choose a profile that would disconnect the network.

    Battery Doctor can be set up to disconnect the data session when the screen is turned off.
