APN information is required for making a direct TCP connection. You can see the various routes available here:

Your application can also supply the APN when making a connection.

Sorry for posting again. Is there any API available to get the APN information from service provider if it is not specified in Option->Advance options - > TCP - > APN (If the user does not know the APN information) for a direct TCP connection programitically?

I wish i could find it, but I was able to find a solution before that handles this. Basically, I had to enter the APN settings to make a connection ( seemed to only be the case for tmobile and a couple smaller carriers ), which got annoying.
Anyway, I found some examples online a while ago that allowed this to work without having to enter the APN information, and it worked 100% of the time.
I'm not sure if this is Alliance member stuff since from what I remember...it's not documented. And i'm not sure of the reprocutions of shraing that info if I do find it.(if it is secret code, that sux that you gotta pay big bucks to produce A-class software).

I think you are talking about the BISB connection method, which is described in the networking video. This is available to Alliance Members. Even as an Alliance member, as I understand it, you need to apply to use this method for a specific application. I beleive BISB routes data through RIM servers, and I suspect they can pull the plug on any connections that are not authorized.
In my experience, this method does not work 100% of the time, as some carriers do not support it.
