Internet connection keep dropping while using Direct Internet Data

Direct Internet Data Service uses software that assists you in managing your airtime by seamlessly connecting and disconnecting you through the Iridium system. When data is not sent over the connection for a period of time, the connection "spoofs." When a connection spoofs, the phone connection is dropped and a placeholder is reserved in the server. Once the user sends data (e.g. click on a hyperlink or send an email), the phone automatically dials back into the system and the connection is reestablished almost immediately. This feature reduces airtime and improves the phone´s battery life.
