Confirm 8830 MDS Connectivity Issue

I am having trouble getting the 8830 simulator to connect to the internet using MDS.  I found this posting by MShom from 7/9/2008 that there "There is an issue with the 4.5 BlackBerry8830 that prevents it from working with the MDS Simulator"

 

Can someone please confirm that this issue still exists, and if so, suggest an alternative?

Re: Confirm 8830 MDS Connectivity Issue

I have the same issue. Can't figure out what's wrong. Trying several different builds to see if that has any bearing on this problem.

Re: Confirm 8830 MDS Connectivity Issue

From reading the BlackBerry MDS Runtime Deployment Administration Guide I figured out that I was using the wrong Device Software version (4.5.0). I downloaded BlackBerry® 8830 World Edition 4.2.2 for Verizon Wireless and everything works with that one. For some reason MDS doesn't support the 4.5.0 version.
