cnn.com, google.com, etc work. My website doesn't.
Is there something I need to do? It's an asp.net 2.0 application. I'm using the 7100g simulator. It works fine in the 8130 simulator. I'm using MDS 4.1.4. I could not get the other MDS to work, I installed the JDE 1.5, but the other MDS installer will not install. Possibly one MDS version works with some simulators, and not others.....but in the 7100g simulator...some sites work, and mine does not.
Going forward, I was also wanting to figure out if the blackberry simply doesn't like some page formatting, etc, and if there is a mobile tag or something that comes down to tell the BB browser this is a page worth grabbing?
Solved! Go to Solution.

can you give the url of the website that does not work ?
does the site validate with the HTML validator and the css validator from the W3C ?
for websites,if they are coded in respects to HTML4 or XHTML, and good css, it should render quite well on any browser including the ones on handheld devices.
otherwise, you can search for a directory of websites. Usually, when a website has an url that matches the following, it's fine :

IF it is your own server, don't forget things like mime type and response headers. I'm not
sure exactly what a 400 is but you can get odd results if this isn't right.
AFAIK, 400 is a bad request being returned from your server. Presumably you are examining request
headers and determining the device is unsuitable.
so, you want to know what your server is objecting to?

I found a path that works. It's www.handtop.com, hosted through webhost4life.com. The handtop.com doesn't work, but site414.mysite4now/huskersam/site1 does work through the simulator.
I'm not sure it's just a path mangle or what exactly - but handtop.com is working through my blackberry, just not he simulator.
Probably some network redirect that is getting mangled, i'm not sure, but it's functional for me now.
Thanks for your replies.
