Download large files using the BlackBerry Mobile Data System for 6.0 +



i am trying to download 400 images in blackberry which are of smaller sizes. range 1-10kb each.


This is the best available option. But, there is a pause which we add in

                 * Pause to allow connections to close and other Threads
                 * to run.

 If i download 400 images then i will get a delay of minimum 400sec which is not desirable. Is there any work around available that can be provided the increase the download speed. I mean is there any change in the chunk size to try out for 6.0+ devices.


Suggestions will be valuable.

A 10kb file shouldn't require any sleep/delay.  The example pertains to very large files, where there could be some lag in writing the file out to a micro SD card.
