    Hi guys,

    I just heard recently about a friend who was using wifi on his iphone. Somehow it got disconnected, and without him knowing, it automatically connected to GPRS, and the data tariffs cost him a fortune. Apparently, it's something about 'default APN' on iphones.

    I was just wondering, is there something similar for us? Perhaps I should post in the support section, but since I use galaxo, I thought maybe asking here would be more helpful. Also, I heard about APNdroid, anyone have any insight there?

    Thanks!

    yep, been using apndroid since the day i bought galaxy (7 months ago). i'm using it only to save the battery as it switches off my 3g/gprs connection, even though ive got unlimited data plan it's still very useful for me.

    A little known feature of smartphones is that in addition to sending text messages and browsing the Internet, you can also use the little button in the corner to talk to people...!!

    Exactly, I don't need to go online 24/7, it's not that critical to me, but I'd like to have the option open when I need it.

    Witty sarcasm aside, I tend to agree. I don't really want to be shutting down half the features of the phone just to make it useable for more than half a day, that's madness.
