I've been doing some testing with Python code I wrote for the ConnectPort X4. While testing I've been keeping a close eye on the data transfer counts out the cellular network. At one point I saw what looked to be a huge anomaly - over 15MB downloaded in a short time! After doing some digging, I came across this in the event log:
2010-11-23 16:17:40 idigi Connection to server failed, server=developer.idigi.com
2010-11-23 16:17:40 idigi Device-initiated connection failed, return=-2
2010-11-23 16:17:40 idigi Service Down - Can't Connect.
2010-11-23 16:17:40 idigi Will reconnect to server in 60 seconds.

It appears that Verizon forced a download of new firmware into the cellular module (Qualcomm Gobi 2000). Has anyone experienced this before? Is this a common thing, and should I worry about it sapping my bandwidth limit? Can it be disabled? I've only been testing the X4 for about a week, and this is the first I've seen the firmware download; however I haven't been explicitly looking for it.
Any and all information will help!
