HttpConnection Intermittent Poblems

My app uses a simple HttpConnection to download and parse some XML
that I host. The important code is as follows:-

                URL url = new URL(urlStr);
                URLConnection connection = url.openConnection();
                HttpURLConnection httpConnection = (HttpURLConnection)
                int responseCode = httpConnection.getResponseCode();

                if(responseCode == HttpURLConnection.HTTP_OK) {
                        // do useful stuff here
                else {
                                               // display connection
failed error message here

This works all the time on my G1 (based in UK), but a number of my
users are complaing they always see the connection failed message.
This is even though they have 3G connections and can browse the
internet, use google maps etc.

Can you see that I'm doing something obviously wrong?

Is there a more robust way to connect?

Any advice greatly appreciated,

2. Can anybody describe a little bit more details about android build structure?

The build structure is quite complicated in android, there seems many
variations and targets, and it is not easy to even know which files
are actually built, which are not. can anybody explain it a little bit
about it? Or there is some docs from Google for it? Thanks. To
understand the build structure is very helpful to port to your system.
