Listen for Data Service on/off event

Data Service on/offI'm trying to detect the event of someone switching data services on/off from the options --> mobile network menu.


I've had limited success with RadioStatusListener and the pdpStateChange event. (It fires on some phones/OS's)


I think I'm able to detect most other ways you might lose/gain your data service but this one seems like my white whale.


I use BB OS's 4.5 and up.


Thanks in advance for any help.

Re: Listen for Data Service on/off event

This event is being picked up by CoverageStatusListener. I think I may have been doing something silly that caused me to believe otherwise.

Re: Listen for Data Service on/off event

how do you initialize this interface? I poked at it with a stick and did a few things but never got it to work.

Re: Listen for Data Service on/off event

I found that, RIM does not provide API to turn off data services, so may we have to work around by use PersistentObject to change data services value. May the code like this:


PersistentObject persist = PersistentStore.getPersistentObject( OptionsDataServicesData.ID );

persist.setContents( new OptionsDataServicesData() );



OptionsDataServicesData.ID is a unique long number, example: long MY_DATA_ID = 0x33abf322367f9018L;


but I don't know exactly value. Could someone know value of this ID?
