Treo 650: constant prompts for update and "connect to network" fail, fail, fail

In the last few weeks I keep getting prompts from the Treo 650 when I turn it on.

It says I have to connect to the network, Yes/No/Never ask again.

I always click Never Ask Again.

Then I click NO.

Nevertheless there's the same thing again the next morning.

Also, I get prompts saying a mandatory update is going to begin, with a countdown.   When I let it happen the phone goes blank.

I leave it for a while, and the battery goes dead.

When I cancel the update, nothing unusual happens.

Since this started, the Treo has killed its battery overnight -- it always lasted several days, until this started.

Each time I plug it in, when it restarts, Bluetooth is always turned on.

I have no use for Bluetooth, always turn it off.
