Default Data Question?

Please Login to Remove!

My Pearl appears to be constantly sending and receiving data (via the arrows in the top right of the screen). Is this normal or are my settings set incorrectly? Also, will this drain my battery faster?
Thanks.

What do you mean by constantly???

It will connect to look for data that running applications need (BBWeather ect...) and to check for email or push services...

I have BBWeather and PDSports that update constantly and have no battery issues...

O.K. Thanks. I guess it's just checking for e-mails, because I don't have any other apps. running. I was just wondering if that was abnormal. Thanks again.

Does this happen in one area, or all over?

My (brand new) 8800 has really horrible coverage at my house so is constantly dropping and trying to pick up a signal. I'm sure that isn't helping the battery at all. I can only get about 36hrs of battery (and I might use 300 minutes a month).

As much as I LOVE 8800 design, it's darn near killin' me that it doesn't work at home I plan to dump it as soon as Sprint releases their 8800 model.

Sounds a little odd to me, but I don't have a Pearl (dang it). What is yhour signal strength like? Do you always have 3-5 bars of service, or is it lower?

To check your actual signal dbs, you can change the 'bars' to a number. While holding down the ALT key, dial NMLL (you'll have to double tap to get the 'N'). Watch the number....if it stays up around 100, then you're not getting a good signal (the lower the number the better, and 256 means out of coverage).

Not really sure, but right now I have 2 bars of signal, and it's sending and receiving data.
