    When I turn on GPS and then rmaps (offline only), mobile data will turn on by itself a minute later. I have location from wireless networks turned OFF. The strange thing is I can't even turn off mobile network without a restart. If I try to turn it off it will just turn on by itself again. Does anyone know why?
    I have Legend 2.1 update 1

    Same problem here.
    I'm running 2.1 Build 1.31.405 (update 1 is not available in my country I think).
    Whenever an app starts the mobile network data plan by itself you can't turn it off.
    Right now I'm either restarting or going to Airplane Mode and back.

    I noticed this myself. The worst part, I think, is I had created a dummy APN with invalid values, which was selected, but somehow the phone was using the original APN to send data, even though the dummy was selected. I have since installed APNDroid, which should ensure that there are NO valid APNs configured on the phone. I'm not too happy about this, as it doubled my cell phone bill for the month

    I've noticed the exact same thing on my Legend aswell! I use an app called NetCounter which allows me to see the amount of data i used through wifi in one day, one week and one month aswell as the amount of mobile data i've used in a day, week and month.

    Try going into settings-wireless and networks-mobile networks and uncheck the box "enable always-on mobile data". This not only saves battery, but I have never had a problem with GPS leaving the data connection open.

    i think most of us with the mobile network problems are running 2.05 or 2.06 (2.1 update 1) correct me if i'm wrong? I've been having another radio problem: I'm having no signal ("x" on the signal bars) when leaving mobile network on for a prolonged period of time (5+ hours).
