| | Help! BBWeather and Beyond411 don't work on 8100 (T-Mobile)
Please Login to Remove!
I cannot get BBWeather nor Beyond411 to work correctly on my 8100 on T-Mobile.
My Pearl used to be on Cingular -- I unlocked it and switched to T-Mobile. I have a FlexPay voice plan and the $20 BIS plan.
I wiped the phone and reinstalled everything after switching to T-Mobile. Regular internet via the browser works fine. Email sending and receiving is fine. However, I can't get apps like Beyond411 and BBWeather to work properly.
Beyond411 works in the "basic connection" mode, where the results come back in a browser screen.
However, when selecting "default connection type" or "direct connection", I get an error "Tunnel timed out" about one minute after initiating a search.
I setup BBWeather using the new (fixed) version, input my ZIP code, etc. and also get an error. I have "disable MDS proxy" checked since this is a BIS connection. After about a minute of "retrieving weather, please wait..." I get an screen that says "Error: null"
My TCP settings are:
I did have my service books resent a few times and also did some hard resets.
I think there is something wrong with the configuration for this 8100 either on the T-Mobile network side or on my phone, but I cannot figure out what the problem is.
Any help would be appreciated.
