Mobile Data Switching on

Hi

I have just received a replacement 701 phone and  set it up

 

 I do not use Mobile data  due to cost   I only switch on if desperate  so mainly use wi-fi  so Mobile data is switched off

 The last two days when behave come to the phone mobile data has switched on and has dowloaded data

 

 So some thing must be switching it on to  update !!!!!

 

One of the main suspects are Psiloc  World Traveler  so made sure its manual update

The other is Netqin Mobile Security  so made sure access point is my wireless router

 The only other is  Viewranger

 

 I have had to temp delete all my O2 mobile data access points till I sort it

 

 My worry is How can a program switch the mobile Data on when it has been set  OF!!!!!!!

Certainly ViewRanger isn't the culprit, although Psiloc World Traveller is notorious in this respect and you might like to look at their resource here:http://www.worldtraveler.biz/faq.html

Re: Mobile Data Switching on

 Thanks for the Link

 I also suspected Psiloc

 

 

 I had disabled  auto updates but not seen the switch  off internet connection  so we shall see

But concerned that a program could override the Mobile Data Settings on the Phone !!

If you had been using Vodafone this is the time when all previous connections are collated for charging purposes, but this is not the case here.

 

Is this device generic SIM free or running network branded firmware?

Mobile Data Switching on its own at 00:00 in

 Please Help

 I have sat up and watched the phone and at 00:00 Mobile  Data Switches On by itself   !!!!

 

 This morning I altered the the time and set it to 23:59  then once again it switched  Mobile Data on at 00:00  so this can not be a network issue its something on the Phones Time

 

I have delete all my added App s plus  Disabled  software Updates

 

 I am still convinced it is something to do with the Weather App I have not used the weather widget but I sill have the wind speed added to my calendar to do List  so this point to the weather App but there is no settings

 can some body with a FP2 check

 

 My phone is  a 701 O2 PAYG  with FP 2 update
