I didn't get to your previous post fast enough. Let me be clear. I don't need code snippets. I already have working code that works in the simulators. The xhr hitch was with launching the BlackBerry simulator without using ant, and I've decided I don't need to attempt to solve that problem.
You are more than welcome to stop posting code. But if you want to post for the benefit of others, that is a good thing.

You know the thing I like about these forums?
People like me answer questions like this
You're quite correct, someone will find this useful and my full application (it's not a snippet) will help someone
Am I upset at your comment?
Am I pleased that I help the community?
Without a question
I don't help people for any other reason other than they need help
I will keep the word 'jerk' out of this post

I was just trying to be clear that I don't need the code, so as to save you time, but I acknowledged that it can benefit others. And since you stated that you enjoy posting answers, I applaud you for that.
Please do not be upset with my response. I meant no offence.
I read your responses carefully and I value your information and input. I may need your expert knowledge down the road. Peace?

That is the best argument I've ever seen to get out of inadvertantly insulting someone trying to help you
Hey - I like you again
Kudos and accept the answer and I'll even accept a friend request
The accept answer is more important as many people seem to be having problems with AJAX - it gets positioned for a day or so
You're also quite right - next time you get stuck I'll prob now the answer (or work it out for you)
I help my friends without question - just gave a great product idea to a friend
I choose my friends carefully

As I'm sure you are aware but for the benefit of others, the choice of using synchronous vs asynchronous xhr requests (similarly applicable for JQ ajax calls) is an important consideration.
I use async which allows my pages to show, pending fill-in with data being fetched from the server.

I finally found an explanation after enough digging. There is an MDS server that is launched by ant to service the networking requests from the simulator. ant takes care of launching the MDS server along with the simulator and hooking the two up so that I have a fullly-capable simulator. I gather that in the physical device, the BlackBerry will be connected to an MDS server provided by the service provider (or the enterprise if that is the case).

Your intent not to offend just hit a major dive
You ask for help - I give you fully functional code and you constantly insult me
I give up! You win.
Oh to be 14 again - I'll stick to people who I can help who appreciate the time I put into this
