Automatically logging onto internet

Hi can anyone help my partner has bought me a MDA VARIO for christmas but I do not have a manual. My problem is since I have set my e-mail address and phone provider whenever I get an e-mail or sms message it connects to the internet so if I dont hear it its on till I dis-connect it which the longest time upto yet is 40mins online without even knowing. Can anyone tell me how to change my settings please.
regards GLYNN

Re: Automatically logging onto internet

I'm not sure if you are using GPRS, EDGE, EV-DO, etc....

this is how you do it with GPRS

REG HACK - Turn off GPRS totally (and back to working state) without going to settings

1: You need a Registry editor ( eg. Resco Explorer... there are freeware registry editors too )
2: Find the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\ConnMgr\Providers\{7C4B7A38-5FF7-4bc1-80F6-5DA7870BB1AA}\Connections\
3: under that , you should see you GPRS settings , for example , mine 's OPTUS GPRS Internet , OPTUS GPRS MMS etc , pick the right one and export it to the *.REG file, and name it to something like " GPRS ON.reg "
4: Modify the setting inside ( for example OPTUS GPRS Internet ) , and change the Enabled value from 1 to 0, then export it to GPRS OFF.reg

use the GPRS ON /OFF .reg to toggle between GPRS always off and on when required.

Happy Registry editing

MDA Vario died - HELP

hi. i have had the same problem and have had to change the battery twice in the three years i have had it. sometimes the batteries that you can buy off ebay are quite cheap but go off without any warning fairly quickly.last one i have bougt has lasted me 1.5 years without any probs.
my other advice would be to back up your contacts/other sensitive information somewhere safe( your phone SIM for example- which has to be done one at a time for the mda vario)as well just in case.
hope it helps
