Error Connection Timed out


I have been testing an application which calls a web-service on the 8310 device. The application works, However, rarely hang-up for two minutes and then it throws an exception :
net.rim.device.cldc.io.ippp.socketbaseioexception:connection timed out.

When this happens, the application can't connect to web service and it throws the same exception again.

I must to close the application and restart the device.

Any Idea??

Re: Error Connection Timed out

The timeout for a connection on a BlackBerry handheld is 2 minutes.  So it looks like the handheld is unable to connect to your server and the connection is timing out.  What BlackBerry Smartphone model and BlackBerry handheld software version are you testing on?  You can find this under Options, About on the BlackBerry Smartphone.  What route is your connection being made over?  Refer to the following links for information on connection routes.

Is the BlackBerry handheld in coverage at the time?
