gprs keep alive on Windows Mobile 5

Wanted to make my old Windows Mobile phone a usable internet radio. For that, gprs keep-alive was needed, since TCPMP by itself was not keeping the connection alive even when it was streaming. Instead of the $2 app, this registry hack did the trick.


for the relevant connection (which connects over GPRS, I had named mine as Mo), switch the "AlwaysOn" value from 0 to 1. Then, one can manually stop the GPRS connection from the Connection Manager by turning Data off, but to connect one just needs to do some sort of network activity like make a phone call or something like that, after which it automatically connects and remains connected.
