My Device: 9930
My Carrier: Verizon

ServerSocketConnection throws IOException:APN not specified

Blackberry Bold 9930, BlackBerry Simulator 9800

JRE 6.0.0 using Eclipse


Using code

        _socket = (ServerSocketConnection)Connector.open("socket://:" + port + ";deviceside=true");


Please help me understand why an APN error is getting thrown here? What puzzles me is that i cannot duplicate this in the US using verizon/sprint devices or the 9800 simulator. This reportedly happens when the app world tests my application.


Please any help is appreciated
