The application is designed for all the BlackBerry models running OS 5.0 and higher. Both touch screen and classic models.
To connect to trading servers and use your application with Cellular data network (GPRS) you will have to make sure that the APN (“Access Point Name”) is specified on your phone:
On the phone go to Settings->Advanced Options->TCP and put APN if it is not there yet. For most carriers, the APN is simply the word “internet”
The reason for such requirement is that other applications (like mail or browser) do not use Direct TCP as they do not require constant network connection and they do not need APN. Whereas your application requires full network support. Of course you can also use the WiFi or other connections available. For this just go to Options on the application’s login screen. There you can enable and rearrange basing on priority the connection transports.
