Apologies if I missed this earlier in the thread.
Is there a list anywhere of the carrier names that will actually show up when you call getCurrentNetworkName()? I saw the list (thank you, by the way) of APN's/etc. to supply - but I don't have a phone on all the networks so I wasn't sure what they would actually be called ("T-Mobile", "TMobile", "T_Mobile", etc.).

I like this Thead and the wrapper code supplied marcus at versatilemonkey. Great stuff.

I finally got the whole connection choice problem taken care of thanks to the sample code provided in this thread. Then I run into the issue of breaking files into chunks as discussed here:
Now I need to combine the samples into a massive WIFI, WAP, TCP, BIS, or just plain old BS download system, then download them as chunks, then recombine the chunks, all to download a 1MB file. That is nothing short of ridiculous!!! RIM should have known that people were going to ummm try to download files using HttpConnections.... (Sorry to rant)

Can you help me? My posts here - http://supportforums.blackberry.com/rim/board/mess
Main problem is I can’t create the tcp connection on the real device (7130). I’ve read your thread. I’ve tried every combination of the parameters. But I’m getting the same error: “Malformed Address. Returning null connection”

For a great explanation of what actually goes on behind the scenes in Direct TCP and WAP, please look at this Post:
The better you understand the structure your app is built on, the better you will understand any problems that occur with it, so I recommend that you review this if using Direct TCP or WAP.

"You can detect Wi-Fi being supported directly and active from the ServiceBooks, or use RadioInfo (on later OS levels)." Really?
I usually have no ideas about this.

I'm extremely new to both RIM development and Java development; I started because there were apps I wanted for my Blackberry that I couldn't find. Reading this thread makes me despair of ever creating a network capable application.
That being said, this is an excellent thread and an amazing resource. Do you think it would be helpful to add a post for individual developers...kind of a "if you're working with RIM API's because you're sick of seeing "<insert application name> for iPhone only" and want to write an app with network connectivity for your Blackberry only"
