nokia 5300 Xpress music "subscribe to packet data first" error msg

I am unable to use any MIDlet applications on my Nokia 5300 phone that access the internet. Whenever I try to open the application like Gmail, Catalogs. I get the following error message: "subscribe to packet data first"

I am however able to access the Internet using the web browser. I think the issue is because the apps are unable to locate the access point. I have defined the access point in the configuration as stated in http://blogs.forum.nokia.com/view_entry.html?id=282

Please note that I was able to use the MIDlet apps until suddenly I started getting this error. I have tried reinstalling the apps, the config settings etc. but nothing will work.

I was thinking a hard reset is the only option. However, i cant find the code to do it. Please advice.

Thanks.

I got the similar problem and no solutuion

I upgrade opera mini 3 to new opera mini 4 but it can not connect on web. When I go on options/application access/communication/(network access or connectivity) it is set to not allowed but it won't change. I even try to fix this problem with updating my phone software but it didn't help. Can anyone help? Please! Any ideas?
P.S. I forgot to wrote, I can use internet with nokia browser and gmail client, and it works fine. Also I tried reinstalling opera 4 but nothing works and installing opera 3, witch was previously installed and worked fine, but it wouldn't connect on web.

Re: nokia 5300 Xpress music "subscribe to packet data first" error msg

hi,
i'm having loads of trouble with gmail on my nokia 5310 xpress music. Before I had a simple 5200 and it worked fine. Now I can connect to gmail online but as soon as i am logged in I get a blank page and it returns to the login page. I also tried to download gmail app and even declared a mailbox with the Gmail parameters but it says some things about insufficient security. Could anyone help please ? are there certificates or tips ? I can't imagine Nokia would not be Google compatible.
I tried by updating the software yesterday but it didn't change a thing.

But i have internet access to the nokia pages, i forgot to mention. Unfortunately, it's no use to me. What I want is access to my Gmail box.

I too have a XpressMusic 5310 and any application that I install or write that tries to access network doesn't allow network.  The option is greyed out to set the access.  I have tried every setting with no success.  I have search online for a solution and no one seems to have the answer.  I called TMobile, my carrier, and they have no clue.  Thier tech support was on the phone with me for 2 hours trying to help and they weren't even sure that the phone could use third party apps.  I wanted to use the freeware Google Maps.  I downloaded the jar and jad files, copied them to the sim card and the application access is still greyed out, unselectable.  I tried using the Nokia PC suite installer for the jar file and same thing.  I wrote a simple jar file that does a URL connection to a website I want to do parse the data and display and even my app that I installed has the Option -> Application Access greyed out.  I am totally frustrated with this phone and the way this phone works.  Please someone help me fix this phone.  The iPhone is looking so much better now accept they don't use java, some **bleep** form of C instead.
