there is one thing i do not understand. i'm testing my application which connects with internet (using wifi or using apn). about wifi- i turn off radio under manage connections, but wifi is on and sometimes the app connects, sometimes it can't but the browser works! how is that possible?

native application such as RIM Browser automatically connects to the internet over wifi if it is availble. So basically, it should work. with regards to your application,
if you want your application to connect over wifi you must append "';interface=wifi" to your url explicitly. Take note that it's better to check if your device is connected to a wireless accesspoint by utilizing CoverageInfo class then if not, you may opt to connect using Direct TCP.

yes, but the same situation happens when i switch the radio off under ManageConnections. so-the radio is off and the wifi is on, but weak with this "white line". application does not connect but browser works. You suggest that it automatically switches to edge, but how if the radio is off?? and that is what i totally do not understand..
i've got in my app conditions which will switch me to another type of connections if the previous one is failed. i just want to know how it works. how it is possible that the browser works with the radio turned off and wifi not fully connected..
