TCP Tunnel Fail BlackBerry Bold

[ Edited ]

Hi guys, im having a hard time since 5 days ago, my problem is that im getting an io error Tunnel Fail when i try a direct TCP  using the following sentence, I have already confirmed with the carrier (Telcel) the apn parameters are ok.  


 conn = (HttpConnection) Connector.open("http://myweb.com/insert.php;deviceside=true;apn=internet.itelcel.com;TunnelAuthUsername=webgprs;Tunn...", _urlParametros.getBytes());


Playing with the url i changed the sentence to this

conn = (HttpConnection) Connector.open("http://myweb.com/insert.php;deviceside=true;apn=blackberry.net;", _urlParametros.getBytes());


and I got io Timed Out


any clue?


My device is a BlackBerry Bold, and i want to know if that is a problem with my device, the carrier or my code. I have tryied a lot of changes and no success, Im able to navigate in the web and the TCP configurations in advanced options are ok.


I have already downloaded the diagnostic tool to test the direct TCP and the test fails as well.



Thank you for your help and support.

I have already solved the problem. The carrier had mixed my Bis Full package with another called Mixto, Telcel did not know mixto is not "compatible" with Bis full until I anoyed them and explained the problem to the ITS guys directly. Mixto disables bis full apn acces. lol


Thank you everybody.

Re: TCP Tunnel Fail BlackBerry Bold

Thanks for reporting this - it is useful to know that this sort of problem can be caused by a user's plan (or lack of it in this case).
