Archived:MIDlet.platformRequest(String URL) does not work properly on early Nokia 6600 firmware (Known Issue)
This method requests the device to handle (for example, display or install) the indicated URL. For example, if the URL is of the form http://www.nokia.com, the WAP browser should be launched. For a URL containing a telephone number, a voice call should be initiated. However, this does not work in software version 3.42.1.
No solutions exist for software version 3.42.1, but this issue has been corrected in software version 4.09.1.
