No, it doesn�t. The A008 as MIDP compliant device does not support socket connection. MIDP only mandates support for HTTP connections. Try to carry out the comunication using HTTP to talk your server-side application.

Well, actually it does. But that's because its MIDP compliant and a little bit extra. However, once you've gone this route, you are forcing your users to have Accompli 008s or other socket-enabled phones, and you may lose potientia users. You takes yer choice...
