mig33 Enters the BlackBerry World With Release of New Application


i have been trying to download the application and my curve hs rejected the system. i cant seem to configue the settings to work does my mobile support the application . note it downloaded correctly but no code and such.... need better direction . would like to have this connection and so would my friends ..

I am getting errors from the server because the connection is getting lost constantly after I'm logged on. Does anyone know what the case may be? Could it be that beta format is the issue, and I should wait around for the full version?

TCP connection is successful, though again it's after I'm logged on for a few minutes that I get booted.
