X6 always connecting to internet with v40 firmware without permission

After updating it to v40 months ago in November, every single day the phone connects to the internet via 3G/GPRS. At first i didn't noticed it was doing that, but after a month i discoved it when i was brwosing the Log. It connects 2 or 3 times a day without even asking me!

I managed to stop it by changing the access point options to ask user name and password, and every time it tries to connect i cancel it. But doing that everyday since November it's getting on my nerves.

The apps i have now are the same i had before the firmware update and the phone didn't behave like that. What the hell is going on?

Also, when i turn on the phone there's an annoying "Nokia account" pop-up asking for my password and a "sign in automatic" option.

Please, anyone, help stop this things. The only thing i've done was updating the firmware to v40. Nothing more.

Re: X6 always connecting to internet with v40 firmware without permission

Hard reset it's not an option for me. There must be a program intalled in the latest firmware that always tries to connect to GPRS/3G.

I have "when needed" option selected, so the phone connects to internet because it needs to do so. But it only started to do that after i installed firmware v40. The only way to block it is by changing the access point
options to ask user name and password, and
every time it tries to connect, i cancel it.
