Hey NofC:

Thx for your very useful review of the GNI - it helped me decide to get one myself, which arrived a few days ago. Just wondering if you could answer a quick question that I can't seem to find an answer to in the manual. Is it possible to turn off the cell network receiver so that it doesn't download data without a prompt? My scenario is that I'd like to use GNI as a pay as you go phone and use the WIFI connectivity to do anything involving data. I don't really need data connectivity via cell network 95% of the time and I don't want to get a monthly data plan for the 5% of the time I'm outside of WIFI range. I read in the manual that I can disable "data roaming" when I'm not connected to my home cell network - is there a similar functionality when I AM connected to my home cell netowrk? Alternatively, is there a way to set the GNI to default to "data over WIFI" in preferance to "data over cell network"?

Any response much appreciated
