HttpConnection statuscode 403 on 8800 device
Posted: Jul 15, 2008 3:09 AM
In my blackberry application i doing HttpConnection
.My carrier is Airtel in India .i am appending wap parameters to base URL like :
(HttpConnection)Connector.open(baseURL+";WAPGatew ayIP=;WAPGatewayAPN=airtelgprs.com" );

using this same url when i send data i have observed some irregular behaviour like sometimes data posts to my server successfully returning status code 200 but some times i get 403.
what may be the reason ? is it from WAPGateway server of my carrier ..anybody has any clue ?please help


I recommend first making sure that the 403 is not originating from your own server.


If it is not then it could be coming from the WAP Gateway.  Carriers can restrict what is sent through their WAP Gateway.  Some examples of restrictions are the type of connection, the destination or the amount of data being sent.  Please contact the service provider to find out what restrictions they place on their WAP Gateway.
