That is entirely correct. The reason behing this Is because it is a "business phone". It shut off the radio to allow the business man or woman to still be able to read saved emails, check calendar, do some memos, etc.
There actually is an app to prevent this. I think I saw it over at the crackberry shop. It is called something like "forceradio on". I didn't check the compatability, but you might want to look into it if u want to turn that feature off
It shuts it off because the power is low and radio needs more power. In addition, tts a real pain in the arse to plug the phone in to the power socket and still not be able to turn on the radio for up to 5 minutes when the battery is deemed charged enough to enable the radio! Very inconvenient when you plug in the charger in a cafe to make a quick call or go online.
