Even though it is possible to access the Internet through GPRS using integrated browsers by successfully configuring the Nokia 6101 and Nokia 6280, HTTP requests cannot be made in the application. The device asks if the Java application should be allowed to access Internet upon running it, and then it gives a message saying "No GPRS connection available" when an attempt is made.


MIDlets do not use the same access point settings in Series 40 2nd and 3rd Edition devices. Create separate settings for MIDlets:

Menu -> Settings -> Configuration -> Personal config. settings -> Add new

Then Select Access point from the displayed list. Keep the default settings as they are for the newly created access point.

Now again go to Menu -> Settings -> Configuration -> Personal config. settings. Press Options and then select activate.

Now the MIDlet will be able to make an HTTP connection.
