Ramble sucks. Bottom line.
well that doesnt help, but ok. anyone else?
Change your settings in Ramble to TCP. It's probably set to device default.
If this is correct, go here: http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...t_carrier.html
Edit: Follow Brooke's advice Goot job at beating me to the punch Brooke
I had the same problem
thanks guys, more supportive than the other guy, lol
dang, i am still getting that error
Who is your carrier and which BB are you using? You might need to change the port #
my carrier is t-mobile, and i got the 8100
Or pull the battery... that worked for me as well after changing the settings.Originally Posted by dasupaman23
Yeah on T-mobile you should be fine with 8080.
Also the question is asked on their sites FAQ
What does 'Invalid Connection String: could not open tunnel- failed' mean?
When you try to login to Ramble and receive this error, or a similar error, it is likely that your device needs to be configured to properly run Ramble.
If you are a corporate user, you should check with your system administrator to ensure that MDS is enabled for your device. If you are a carrier user, you will need to configure TCP and set Ramble IM Options.
If you're not sure if you're a corporate user or a carrier user, your email address can help you figure it out. Let's say your company is named Foo. If your BlackBerry email address is email@example.com, you're probably a corporate user. If your BlackBerry carrier is MyCarrier, and your email address is something like firstname.lastname@example.org, you're probably a carrier user.
Take a look at the configurations page for information on how to configure your TCP settings for use with Ramble.
(sorry for all these questions, im a nooby at this) but im on the ramble settings and it says network connection: and i can either choose use MDS TCP, or use Device TCP, which do i choose? and below that it says TOC host & port, do i change anything on that? thanks again for hleping me out

Your Ramble is broken because Ramble is broken. Dump it and get Jivetalk.
