1. A method of a communication device including a controller, a memory and a radio transceiver including a modem, the method comprising:

  • initiating an initial communication via the modem in response to a data pull communication event or a data push communication event;

    determining by the controller a measured network condition value associated with transmitting the initial communication;

    determining by the controller a power consumption value of the initial communication based on the measured network condition value processed by monitoring the modem;

    comparing by the controller, the power consumption value with a predetermined power consumption value stored in the memory related to a predetermined acceptable measured network condition value for this type of communication event; and

    terminating by the controller, the communication when the power consumption value exceeds the predetermined power consumption value based upon the acceptable measured network condition value for this type of communication event.
