[SailfishDevel] MobileNetwork / MobileData automatically on after reboot - what the heck?

thank you for prompt answers!

Dalvik enabled - how should i check this?

I turned the MobileData after unpacking the phone, than after updating it
and after agreeing to the Maps license. I do not want to pay for the mobile
data while i am on my way and I do not want to have a flatrate, so it is
explicitly OFF.

I noticed that when I start Maps app, MobileData turns ON. Than I turn it
OFF and than after couple of minutes it closes by itself. In the meantime
it asks me for internet connection every darn couple of seconds - very
annoying. I feel like I don't have control over the device.

Is this a feature of the Maps app that it turns the MobileData ON, or is it
a feature of Jolla after enabling Location, that I agree generally for all
applications to turn MobileData ON when no other connection available?
Because it this is Maps app only the solution for me would be not using it
at the moment - however there is no alternative now. The latter would be
really bad :(

Maybe there is sth else I do wrong which is not related to location
directly(?)

At the moment i feel like coming back to N9 or N950 with my SIM for
stability, but in longer terms this will not work.
