Go to the website that you downloaded RambleIM from. They have a FAQ page with that exact problem listed and the reason for the problem.

damn, im having trouble too. i get a long pause at the 'loggin in, please wait' and then it shows 'invalid connection string - unable to open the connection'


i origonally had the same problem as posted here first, but i didnt have wap.voicestream.com in the tcp settings. ive tried to enter the login and password in the tcp settings but it doesnt seem to make a difference, so i have them blank now.

im on tmo with a pearl. unlimited data + voice. any ideas?

no go. everything has got to be set right. im starting to think for whatever reason it wont connect to ramble is the same reason i cant get this phone to tether to my pc as a modem. its the same thing with that, it seems to connect then just doesnt do anything.

funny part is my phone's browser works fine, i use it all the time.

I am having issues with my vzw 8703e as well, same error "invalid connection string". Ive deleted and reinstalled with no joy. I get the same connection issues with the demo versions of verichat and yak-on.
VZW doesnt have the tcp settings like t-mo.
No clue what happened as Ramble did work at one time on my unit. I posted a thread in the 8700 section with no replies yet. It must be something changed on my end.

This is my post since I do not yet have enough posts to link:

I cant seem to get any of them to connect on my VZW 8703e.
Searched " invalid connection string" and read all that has been posted and most concern the t-mo settings in the tcp but verizon doesnt have that option. I did try this:
Verizon 7250
Cellular Plan: Verizon unlimited data
Options -> Ramble IM -> Network Connection: Use Device TCP
Options -> Ramble IM -> TOC Host & Port: toc.oscar.aol.com:1290
No option for TCP configuration on Verizon
As posted on ramble site for settings and I still get the "invalid connection string" error. My port was 8080 by default so I tried the 1290 as well with no result.
I also get this error with the demo versions of verichat/ yak-on as well so I believe it to be a setting I must have changed or an app changed inadvertantly.

All other functions on the unit seem fine, it just wont connect with any im client. Weird this is that ramble did work at one time. only changes were to load the normal apps: pocket day, google maps, berry411 and the free games available.

Any help would be greatly apperciated.

Dave.
