Unable to turn off mobile data
I have a sim free Hero on 3UK that I recently upgraded to 2.1. Since doing so, I have noticed that the data turns itself on every so often.
I normally use the htc widget to turn on/off the mobile data as I don't use it while at work/at home. Occaisionally, I notice that it is switched on and when I try to switch it back off, it restarts itself. I've noticed this on quite a few days now over the last couple of weeks and once it starts doing it, I can't stop it!
I can only think it is down to either some app that I have installed or the synch settings, but I have checked for running processes and killed anything that looks like one of my apps.
I have also disabled:
Settings>about phone>system software updates>Scheduled check
Settings>Synch settings>Background data
Settings>Wireless & Networks>Mobile networks>Enable always-on mobile data
I would like any apps just to use data if I switch it on and am unsure what the best settings are for the above.
I don't really know what else to do to stop it. Has anyone got any ideas?
