One note.  If you (like I) move around a lot, as in driving down the highway.  
Your poor IT can go nuts trying to find a connection. *grin*  When I first 
got my 800  I noticed that when I left work, and drove home down the freeway 
by the time I got home (1 hour later) my battery had dropped 50%  so I 
disable the auto connect and no problem.  

The 800 isn't too good at searches done at 80mph  

Other thing I learned.  Don't put it on phone autoconnect.  Kills your phone
