Mike's Deck on Network Connections Skipped Unite!

Hey Mike (or anyone else who knows):

 

Can I do this to open MDS connection through my Unite!?

 

HttpConnection conn = (HttpConnection)Connector.open

(“http://www.blackberry.com;deviceside=false;

ConnectionUID=S109234”);

 

 

Where S109234 is the UID in the Service Book Unite[IPPP]?  I don't see an MDS book for Unite.

 

Is there any reason for the distinction between [MDS] and [IPPP] in the service book?

I just noticed that the comments say "Mobile Data Services" under the Unite[IPPP] and under Desktop[MDS]

it says "MDSS"..

 

I am trying to ensure a generic way of presenting all of my MDS conduits to the user.

 

Of course I will give this a try and see how it works.  I just thought I would post for the record.  (Now there

is something on Unite! in the forums :smileywink:)

The following example application demonstrates the different ways to make a connection, including Unite.

Re: Mike's Deck on Network Connections Skipped Unite!

Thanks Mark.

 

BTW: There was mention of also providing the APNs and usernames and passwords for all

of RIM's carrier partners.  This would be of great help for our BIS-B services.  Is this still planned and if

so is there any ETA?   (or did I miss it somewhere?)

 

Regards,

Re: Mike's Deck on Network Connections Skipped Unite!

We are actively working on an updated implementation of the Network Diagnostic Tool that would include the different APNs for the carriers and how to determine the appropriate one to use based on the device characteristics.  We will provide it as an update to the existing knowledge base article when this is ready.
