CoverageInfo doesn't report MDS coverage properly?

I'm wondering why CoverageInfo.isCoverageSufficient(CoverageInfo.COVERAGE_MDS) always returns false on the simulator, even when I have the MDS simulator running. The simulator browser works fine. 

I have not actually gone through the trouble of doing the BES setup wizard in the simulator, but it seens I don't have to do that in order to use an MDS transport. So why does the MDS test always fail?

Re: CoverageInfo doesn't report MDS coverage properly?

yes, it does not work on the simulator. didn't test it with a simulator connected to a real bes though.

my code uses DeviceInfo.isSimulator && normal coverage.
