Default Ramble error: "invalid connection string: Bad DNS Address"

Please Login to Remove!

Ramble worked fine on my BlackBerry 7105t until a few days ago when I started getting this error message when trying to log in:

"Invalid connection string: Bad DNS Address"

I configured Ramble according to the instructions at ramble-im:

Cellular Plan: T-Mobile Blackberry Unlimited Plan
Options -> Ramble IM -> Network Connection: Device Default
Options -> Ramble IM -> TOC Host & Port: toc.oscar.aol.com:1290
TCP Configured (Yes/No): Yes

APN: wap.voicestream.com
Username: phone number (or blank)
Password: T-mobile website password (or blank)

I tried to enter my username and password, but got a different error message.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thanks!

Have you tried pulling the battery on the BB and letting it reboot?
