After spending a lot of time tracking down an EOFException when making an Http Request I found out that I was actually sending a request to the server that was being blocked by their firewall. In my specific case it was because the server was configured to block if I didn't have the correct user-agent header. It wasn't a BlackBerry HttpConnection problem at all. Hope this helps anyone else who runs into this problem and thinks it is a code problem.
