    Hey all!

    I currently have the "pay as you go" data plan, and sometimes the phone will automatically make a data connection, which starts charging me money. I've been going to the Connections area and erasing the "Broadband #777" connection, which works until I do a soft reset. After I do a soft reset, it comes back.

    Is there any way (registry? script? applet?) to make sure the broadband connection is removed whenever I do a soft reset, so I never have to think about it?

    I know that I can call verizon and have "national access" blocked, but I want to leave national access on in case I need to make a data connection for whatever reason.

    Ideas?

    As always, THANK YOU!

    I agree. why spend so much money on this phone and only use 10% of its capabilities?

    You should be able to change the username/password of the Broadband connection that is already there. Then it won't be able to connect when it tries to dial. That should save itself after a soft reset as well.

    Interesting, idea smeg36. Thanks!

    As for unlimited broadband, it's pricey and I bought the phone more for it's PDA capabilities.. and I have a wifi card for when i need the net.

    Or you can simply uncheck the Save Password so that you're just prompted for that for a connection.

    But make sure you find out from Verizon what the password is just in case you need to use it.

    I can always delete the connection and soft reset - that restores the connection, password and all.

    The default username and password are verizon and verizon for the Treo 700w's default Broadband connections. Other devices have yourcellnumber@vzw3g.com for the username and vzw for the password, but oddly not the 700w.
