    Question Socket Connection Failure

    Advertisement



    Hello.

    I just purchased a Blackberry Pearl from T-mobile a week ago. Its an awesome phone! my first blackberry! ive been downloading a bunch of games and ultimate bet is giving me problems. Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction or enlighten me.

    After i sign in i get a window that says "there was a problem creating socket connection {ex=java.io.ioexception: open tunnel-failure"

    I was browsing around the site and some of you suggested changing the TCP settings.

    I was lead to a page for the t-mobile tcp settings.

    ^can't post url yet.

    i tried the t-mobile usa internet and vpn and still getting the error.

    [blank] means leave it blank rite?

    where can i enter those DNS numbers?

    am i doing something else wrong?

    flylow, Welcome to PinStack.

    Try the settings for TMO in this thread, TCP, APN, WAP, Gateway and Port Carrier Settings.

    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with this problem or your BB.

    Re: Socket Connection Failure

    Thanks for the welcome guys.

    i tried the link and used:
    T-Mobile (US) 1
    Gateway IP: ?
    Port: ?
    APN: internet2.voicestream.com

    and started ultimatebet with no luck

    then i tried:
    T-Mobile (US) 2
    APN: wap.voicestream.com
    Username for APN: (blank)
    Password for APN: (blank)
    WAP Gateway IP: 216.155.165.50
    WAP Gateway Port: 9201

    i left the username and password blank. where do i enter those wap ip and port numbers? i cant seem to find the wap edit menu.

    then i went to the updated tcp link.

    and entered:
    T-Mobile (Internet) internet2.voicestream.com][blank] [blank] DNS: 216.155.175.105, 216.155.175.106

    i also tried.
    T-Mobile (VPN) internet3.voicestream.com [blank] [blank] DNS: 216.155.175.105, 216.155.175.106



    where can i enter those dns numbers? it says they are optional so im assuming i dont need to enter those for it to work. what do they do anyway.

    after trying all of these i still get the same error :confused

    Re: Socket Connection Failure

    Try entering just the APN: wap.voicestream.com. And make sure you save the settings. Do a Cold Reboot (Battery Out, wait 15-30 sec, Battery Back in), then go check to see if the settings are still correct.

    Let us know the results.
