Dears, I've been suffering with this nokia 6600 for two days now to connect to my server, but no hope !,   although the application is working with other mobiles and emlators ?!

It is giving me   "SymbianOS error -5120"   ,  

and hangs exactly at the statement :  http.getResponseCode();        (  any help ?)    Q1

But I read that 6600 is full of bugs, and there are some new firmware 5.27 ( or something )

does anyone know how to upgrade it ?, why the upgrade is not in nokia web ?

Thanks for the help

http.getResponseCode() is the point where the connection will be started, so it is most likely an error with your phone's connection. Could be that you are using WAP instead of Internet settings?

I have tested the oldest 6600 with HttpConnection / Internet settings and it works OK. Yes there are annoying bugs in it too and you should probably get a newer firmware in the phone, but it shouldn't matter for the connection.

I think you have to bring your phone back to the shop and ask them to do it, or buy some special cable to do it yourself :(

's ok :)

With Internet settings I mean the settings you define in an access point so that you can access Internet. For example, most operators tell you to select GPRS as the data bearer, "internet" as the name of the access point, and some custom IP and DNS settings. It depends on your operator, but Nokia has the settings of a whole lot of operators on their website which you can get for free by SMS from the site.
