Have you installed the CAB file properly? Don't open CABs on your PC - copy the archive straight onto your PPC and install it from there using a file explorer, or use the CABViaActiveSync utility provided in "Paul's free software" in this forum (hermes.modaco.com).

Your other questions can be answered a) by RTFM, and :P not on this thread! :D

thanks i will give that a try, and sorry about that add-on question, i should know better!! :)

Quick, handy little application i've rustled up as i'm off abroad for a few days soon, and don't want to run up a huge GPRS bill.

It lists your GPRS connections, and allows you to disable them so that they won't be used.

Disable your connections before you leave, re-enable them when you return - piece of cake with MoDaCo NoData :)

P

you're da man!

I tried to install the Disable GPRS program, but when i try and run it it throws up a error message like "
ERROR, An unexpected error has occurred in NoData.exe.
Select Quit and then restart this program, or selet Details for more informaation"
so i restart and it still say the same thing.

I have the same error (also here). O2 Xda Mini S, Win Mobile 5.1.195 (Build 14847.2.0.0).


Problem solved: it turned out that error occured because there were no GPRS connections set up in the system. After adding one everything went fine.
Thanks for a great program!

Cheers mate!
After recieving my Orbit i was doing fine with just turning wifi on when i got to work/when i got home, I accidently installed O2's settings and the GPRS fired up every now and then when i opened Hotmail, msn messenger etc. Before this started to cost me a fortune with O2's ridiculous data charges I had a look on this forum and voila! you made me the program i needed! Great, thanks again.

Hi Paul,
Thanks again for a very useful tool (I have been reading a lot of ModaCO posts during last week - I have just gotten a new TyTN and I try to learn new tricks specific to the phone functions - these forums are really terrific!). I have a small question: I have already installed GB-SOft Tweak nad I have the impression that this applet already provides this function or am I missing something (I do not yet understand all the implications of the new GPRS possibilities on my TyTN)?

Best regards,
Murat

Word of notice when roaming. I just got back from the states - I had the GPRS monitor running to make sure nothing was downloading, and every now and then it'd register a few hundred K - quite often when I tried to connect to the hotel WiFi and it missed - it's start to dial and I'd cancel. However looking at my t-mobile bill it hasn't (thus far) actually logged any activity. So either it didn't actually download anything (and the GPRS monitor is confused) or it takes a while for roaming data charges to be transferred (even though the voice calls already have).

Just a point of note.


In my experience, GPRS Monitor doesn't predict my T-Mo USA data usage well at all. I compared 6 weeks of use. GPRS monitor was on average 25% higher, but there were days that T-Mo said I was 33% higher than GPRS Monitor. It was definitely correlated (p=.7) but wildly inaccurate. I emailed the company, was forwarded to a tech, who said 'how could we possibly be accurate for every one of the hundreds of cell providers.' I asked for a refund.

Now what is interesting is why. First, GPRS monitor attempts to track all usage, some of which is overhead and the companies aren't including in billing. But at the same time, the companies seem to be estimating data usage and not recording it exactly. I suspect that GPRS Monitor is in fact accurate (although including unbilled overhead). If I left my data connection enabled but unused for a day (I did a hard reset to insure nothing was connecting), T-Mobile said I used a small amount of data (4K). GPRS monitor said I used about 12K. Now the only thing that was running was GPRS monitor and keeping my connection alive with the registry hack.

By the way, the palm Treo doesn't have the problem of data overuse at all. Checking email with a treo, I used 20% of the data I use with the T-Mo MDA, doing precisely the same thing on the same volume of data. Checking email when there are existing emails on the server uses a lot of data in Windows Mobile, not in Palm.

Thanks for the program; I will use it traveling. The one sure way not to be overcharged is to have GPRS off.

Just like to add my thanks for this great utility.

My wife got an o2 xda mini mainly to use the keyboard for texting, she doesn't use gprs so i got round it at first by using a dummy connection so it failed every time. This was a bit of a kludge so I l looked a bit further & found that the
connections could be disabled in the registry - I tried a remote reg editor but it would not let me change the keys. Then I found this!
Brilliant - Now I can turn all gprs connections off quickly & easily and back on again if we ever need to use it.

I do find it pretty awful that there isn't a built in setting to do this. Anyone who doesn't understand the technology (i.e. my wife) could inadvertantly run up huge bills!

An unexpected error has occured in NoData.exe

Details:

Hi Paul.
Thanx for a great app, I've been looking for exactly something like this.

I have one question tho.

Is there any chance to run NODATA with command line parameters?
Because everytime I reset my eten glofiish M700 all the connections are enabled again.
(somehow registry values are "default" again)

I have no idea if the app itself can be changed to "survive" soft reset or just run
as a startup command...

I would like to know if anyone else has the same problem, coz I guess all of us have to reset our phones sometimes ;)

Thanks a lot, you did a great job

How do you copy Nodata to the Xda? I've successfully copied it onto my PC but, I don't seem to be able to copy the file and extract it on my Xda. If

I have installed this on a HTC3300 and when i try to open it i get an error. There is an error in NoData.exe. Close and read the details. In the details it says a bunch of not understandable signs. Is there another way to make this work because i realy like to disable that GPRS. Never use it.

I had it working with my Trinity, but after a newer ROM-upgrade I have the same errors like many others here...

So you need to have the settings installed before the program works?

Does this little nice app will work also to disable EDGE connection, or only GPRS?

Thanks.
