APN selection dialog when opening HttpConnection

Hi,

On Nokia S60 phones there is an APN selection dialog when opening an
HttpConnection from a MIDlet.
Same behavior for a signed MIDlet.

Is it possible to bypass this dialog in anyway ?
Is it the expected behavior for all S60 phones or only for specific
carriers?

Has anyone tried to solve it via a native application (launched by the
MIDlet) which will configure the APN ?

Thanks in advance,
Avi

I had this problem about a year ago, seemed to affect all series 60s, you
even get the question when there is only one APN present on the phone anyway
- rendering the question totally pointless.

This simple mistake(?) in their design means that series 60 phones can't be
used for those times when you want an application to autonomously wake up
and connect to a server without having to bother the user (in our case
because they were driving). It makes signing the app for a series 60 a lot
less worth it. We had more luck with other Nokias and SE phones.

This is how S60 phones handle the APN selection. The APN selection
dialog is presented to the user who then can choose the APN to be used.
This is how both signed and unsigned MIDlets behave.
Native app cannot configure the APN for the MIDlet.
