That's the whole point of these devices, especially if you have push e-mail. I never click disconnect from my EVDO network, of course noone is online 24/7 because of coverage issues.

As many people have mentioned in the past, unlimited data plans are a must with these types of devices.

Even when it's on, your EVDO internet connection will remain in an idle state until a program accesses it (such as WeatherPanel for an update) or for push email, etc. I don't really see a need to turn it off unless you don't have an unlimited plan (and even without it, if you ensure you don't have random programs accessing the internet, you should be fine).
