    Does anyone know if it is possible to disable the automatic data connection whenever internet explorer is started (deliberately or accidentally)? Basically I would like the system ask me "are you sure you would like to start a data connection?" instead of auto dialing, as I am always on the road and don't want to incur unwanted roaming data costs.

    Also, what is the best program to use to allow me to reassign the softkeys so that I can get rid of the internet explorer link in the today screen?

    Thanks,
    Brett.

    Roaming charges? Who is your service with? I didn't think any of the major GSM providers had roaming charges anymore?

    I use about:blank as my home page..no need for a data connection to start that

    if you search you should be able to find posts relating to using a reg editor to edit those soft keys..

    I use modaco's NODATA.cab to shut off all data until needed.

    re: the softkeys any registry editor can make the changes for you...

    Here is the path:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Today\Keys]


    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Today\Keys\113]
    "Open"="\"\\Windows\\AppButtons\\Internet explorer.lnk\""
    @="Internet"


    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Today\Keys\112]
    "Open"="\"\\Windows\\AppButtons\\Contacts.lnk\""
    @="Contacts"
