Hi!

I am using the latest binary for Windows Mobile 5 of PhoneME Feature from
http://www.cs.kuleuven.be/~davy/phoneme/index.htm

I have found a strange behaviour. My j2me Midlet connects to a server over a tcp socket connection.

I have a Motorola MC75 device for testing purposes which has WLAN, HSDPA/UMTS, ... integrated.

I can't connect my midlet to the server, it always writes "Connecting..." and never get's connected.

I do not have this behaviour only in my midlet. The MVMManager has the same problem. I can't install a midlet from the web. It never get's a connection and it always fails with an error that no midlet suite can be found.

I have tried it with WLAN and UMTS. In both cases I've established the internet connection with the internet explorer (still running in the background). Doesn't work.

A few minutes ago some strange things were going on.. I had the pda in the docking cradle connected to my pc by usb and the midlet could connect to the server. This just worked just a few times, now it doesn't work again.

Does anybody have encountered the same problems or do have some idea what would be the reason for this problem?

Thx!

Hi Davy!

First of all, I have to apologize. My pda has Windows Mobile 5.2 I just saw that this is published as Windows Mobile 6.

I just tried it out. I have to disable WLAN, BT and the phone and do a restart of the pda in the cradle. I can connect to the internet through phoneME.
Strange, my midlet can connect to the server through a socket connection. If I start runMidlet.exe and try to install the midlet by url, it fails and tells me that there's no midlet suite found.

After enabling WLAN or UMTS it doesn't work again.

Thx!

I too am seeing this issue. I can reproduce the problem using WM 5, 6 and 6.1 emulators. I can also see the problem on a HTC Touch running WM 6.

Hi pstefan and pjulien,

Could you tell me which build you are using? Is it the Windows Mobile
5 build of phoneME Feature rev14593? I tested with Opera Mini 4 which
seemed to work fine via WiFi on my device. .

It is indeed a bit odd that you can get a connection through the USB cradle
seemed to work, but not through WLAN etc. I can look into it, but it will be
difficult if I cannot reproduce the problem myself.

Cheers,
Davy

I can use the build that is up from today and I still get the same result.
