Default BB powers up with Radio OFF!

Please Login to Remove!

I am a new BB user and am slowly getting used to it.. After installing some apps (including 'Maps') I decided to remove it as I understand that Maps doesn't work by default unless you have a specific data plan.

After the de-install had occured, the BB restarted... I kept looking at it all evening and was surprised not to get a single message.. Then this morning, I was even more surprised that nothing had come in, as I usually get 10-30 mails per night.

Then I noticed that Radio was OFF! I now remember that when you power on, the BB starts up with Radio OFF..

Is there any way to change this behavour.. I hope so, as its a little worrying that if it powers off by its self (which is common for other devices, so I am assume possible with a BB) the radio might end up off without you knowing.

My fingers are crossed that there is a solution to this and I look forwards to your replies.
