Disable mobile data auto-enable on boot
#1
I've followed the instructions at the wiki on setting up mobile data, and it works fine, except that it really kills the battery. Every time the phone boots it auto-enables any connections it can, which means to prevent the phone from automatically overheating and dying after a few hours in my pocket I need to remember to manually turn data off.

Is there a way to configure the modem connection with nmcli to keep it from turning on automatically, or should I just have a script run a few minutes after boot to turn it off?
The second option seems kinda hacky to me so I'd rather avoid it, but I'm using sxmo so I might as well embrace the way of the bash scripts...

I'd like to know the answer to this as well. It is disheartening to see that no one has come forward to answer or reply.

@ 64_Tesseract : what did you finally do to resolve this issue?

I too would like to find an answer to mobile data being auto-enabled at boot, surprised no one has come forward yet. Can you tell me what you eventually came up with?
