Using the Windows Mobile internet connection

1 post in this topic


Hi Everyone,

I'm making a Windows Mobile 6 application in C# to help all those affected by Alzheimer's as well as similar conditions

One bit of that requires that my C# app gets a mobile number from a .txt file on my website, then sends an SMS Text message to it.

I have sorted out sending texts, but when it looks for the .txt file, it crashes because it can't find the internet, even though there is a constant data connection on my Windows Mobile phone (HTC HD2)

The code I have so far is...

		private void btn_send_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)


			btn_send.Enabled = false;

			int i = 0;

			string fileline;

			HttpWebRequest reqFP = (HttpWebRequest)HttpWebRequest.Create("http://jamesgeddes.com/tracknan/phone.txt");

			HttpWebResponse rspFP = (HttpWebResponse)reqFP.GetResponse();

			Stream st = rspFP.GetResponseStream();

			using (StreamReader sr = new StreamReader(st))


				fileline = sr.ReadLine();


			SmsMessage x = new SmsMessage("fileline", "DONE");

			for (i = 0; i <= 10; i++)


				label2.Text = Convert.ToString(i);

				x = new SmsMessage("fileline", Convert.ToString(i));


				btn_send.Enabled = true;



How do I get it to recognise the internet connection? Any help would be grately appreciated, as it will benefit those affected by Alzheimer's as well as similar conditions

Thanks everyone!
