I have a phone. A Samsung Instinct. Don't know if that makes any difference.
I wanted to try to use my Samsung as a data modem for my netbook in those few moments when I didn't have WiFi close by. Never really got it to work. Not really a huge concern for me, as I spend most of my time within easy access of WiFi.
And now, when I have my netbook on, it seems to try to connect every 30 seconds or so to my phone.
- I work out of cell phone reception, so it couldn't connect on my desk if I wanted it to, which really I don't
- It drops to the speed dial menu after it fails and drops the lock, which puts me in danger of butt dialing
- It keeps it from being in sleep mode, thus eating the battery
So, clearly, I hate hate hate that it does this.
Any pointers to fixing this behavior while still keeping the Bluetooth dongle on? I on occasion want to copy things to the phone without finding my USB cable, and would rather have things on.
