Blackberry Simulator - Insufficient Network Coverage

I have been doing a bit of mobile web development and had a problem when testing the site in a Blackberry simulator.

The message displayed on the black berry when doing a postback reads 'There is insufficient network coverage to process your request. Please try again later.'

The simulator has full signal and 3g etc is enabled. After doing a bit of research it appears the message is displayed becuase the page is trying to submit the form with a 'POST' action which causes this problem on both the Blackberry simulator and actual Blackberry devices. To get around this issue you can specify the form method to use 'GET' which resolves the problem.
