    Packet Data Dormant?

    After using my two web browsers I found a message kept appearing on the screen, "Packet Data Dormant" with a picture of a phone.

    I could make calls while the message kept appearing, but it worried me of course as I couldn't find anything on the documentation about it.

    What is it? Do I need to be concerned?

    Dormant mode means that the data connection is established, but the radio in the 7135 is in a semi-sleeping state as to save battery power. This mode does use air time minutes unless you have an unlimited data plan.

    Silvr,

    Thought so, and thanks for the clarification.

    I was able to call when in this mode, but thought prob'ly I was racking up minutes.

    So how do I disconnect it, do you know? I disconnected in the browser, but to no avail. Since the same thing didn't happen when I used only the EIS "Web" browser, just now, seems to me it prob'ly happened after using the Eudora browser, which I used the other day before using the EIS one. Maybe.

    Start the Prefs PDA application and go to the Network section. There should be a "Disconnect" button in there. Otherwise, shut off the power on the phone side of the 7135 by holding down the red power button. Then turn it back on.

    I deleted the EIS and Eudora Browsers as soon as I got the phone, so I'm not familar with them, but any browser worth it's salt has a "disconnect upon exit" option in the setup or options menu. You might check for that.

    Recommend WebPro or nWeb brpwsers.
