Hi Everybody,
i'm a bit confused abt inethttp and http. i've read every where that PalmVIIx supports inethttp instead of http BUT when i use inethttp, i get "ConnectionNotFoundException:unsupported protocol:inethttp" and when i use http it works fine for me. Remember i made this test on Real Palm.
i dunno what to say now!

Where did you read about the inethttp stuff? MIDP is supposed to provide cross device compatibility. If this "inethttp" is a Palm-only thing, it is probably not supported in MIDP4Palm and has been modified to behave like real http ...

well i've read in different Forums like JGuru and even in this Forum there are some posted-messages that tell you to use inethttp instead of http, and yes they also say that it's something specific to PalmVIIx (which has builtin wireless modem). i agree that may be MIDP4Palm has been modified to behave like normal http.
But i've noted some thing while using MIDP4Palm, i can't get the "ContentType" and "ContentLenght" in my MIDlet runnin' on Real Palm, thu it works fine on Emulator, dunno why? does any one know that?

P.S. Micheal what are the Wireless Service Providers other than Palm.Net? Which one you use for wireless Apps?

I do not know of any other Palm wireless network providers. Can you use the modem on Palm VII to dial up normal ISP phone numbers and make generic TCP/IP connections? I doubt so ...
However, a number of cell phone manufacturers and networks have provided data service on their phones:
