View Full Version : VZW LG4400 + Gomadic + h5455 = Disconnect every ~1min

Someone asked about this on Brighthand recently, and I remembered seeing a discussion on PocketPCPassion about it with a possible solution. I haven't tried it, and don't remember the details -- something about a utility to keep the connection alive -- but I posted the link on Brighthand. PocketPCPassion seems to be down right now, or at least I can't get to it, but here's the link anyway --
