When using the platformRequest() method, the user must close the MIDlet before the browser is launched.


According to the specification, the platformRequest(String URL) method should launch the browser if the URL is in an appropriate form (with or without the MIDlet running in the background). However, the browser is not launched until the MIDlet is closed by the user with the notifyDestroyed() method, since pressing the RED key does not start the browser. However, starting a voice call works immediately without exiting the application.
