The user is not notified that a network operation has been requested while MIDlet.platformRequest() is called until the application terminates.


According to the MIDP 2.0 specification the platformRequest() method should return true if the MIDlet suite must exit before the content can be fetched.

In the Nokia 6280 this method returns true but it does not notify the user that the MIDlet has to be closed. Create an Alert screen saying that the user should close the MIDlet first.

After the MIDlet has been closed the user will get a notification for the requested network operation. For example: "Do you want to go to the Web address".
