    thats strange, it always worked for me...
    on which device are you trying it ? On S40 devices you will have to close you're app before the browser will actually start...

    hhmm, do they both have a working internet connection ? So if the native browser is started and you enter (for example) www.google.com yourself it works ?
    also how are you adressing the url ? http://www.google.com ?

    can you paste the code ?
    maybe your url syntax isn't completely right ? You are actually pointing to a .jad which you host on your site right ?

    Please check your URL encoding - J2me platform request will need proper URL encoding, which browser does automatically.

    thanks all, i have found the issue was the url has a space which the browser does trim it.
