    Vision stays active even if I close...

    Why does Vision stay active afetr I close PIE or Email or anything else? I have to go into settings and manage network wizard for it to stop.

    That is the way Vision works; just like your desktop (when you close IE, you are still connected to the internet). It stays connected, but doesn’t necessarily transmit any data (so no hit on the battery). If it is dormant long enough, it will disconnect itself. I never bother shutting it down manually on my Treo and won't do it either on my PPC6600 when I can finally get it.

    So, in short, don't worry about it.

    And Palm OS, since it works the same way on my Treo 600.

    WOW that is cool that it stays on, so it not like the G1000 then when you need for it to dial #555 that is kick ass

    confusion here...

    this version of windows OS has a provision in it that will have an always on connection. there is no need for you to initiate a call. the dormant connection will wake up when a program asks it to.

    in older versions such as ppc2002, you have to manually initiate a call to #777. you CAN keep this data connection alive if you want but it may eventually disconnect after some time.

    ixrtt does allow us to do this and not be charged for the conenction; we are only charged for the data being moved...
