Default Why does Google Talk work just fine, but my apps don't?

Please Login to Remove!

Why is it that the Google talk application can work just fine for sending and receiving messages, but when I try to do any sort of data communication with my own blackberry it doesn't want to work?

I am on the bell network, using a 7250, and NO BES server.

All I'm trying to do at this point is to open an HTTP connection, and read the result from the page. Works just fine on the emulator, but not on my actual device.

Thanks for any and all help!

Cheers,
Ryan

Hum I believe that APN settings are for TCP socket connetion and not http.
By the way if wants to use this kind of connection you should subscribe to an advanced data plan allowing tcp connection.

So if I were to connect to a BES server, I shouldn't have any trouble, correct?

Yep,
I believe you don't need apn settings for http connection.
Actually I do not need apn settings for http connection while I need them for socket connection.

the apn specifies the wap proxy through which the blackberry tunnels to the outer world. you can specify it as part of the connection string in your code or you can rely on it being set on the device. we choose the latter as we don't know which carrier our bis customers will be on, more details here:

Livelink - Redirection

have you successfully been able to get Bell users to use your web enabled applications without a BES server?
