Hi Leo,

Here are a few additions to Arian's comments.

This works.  It would also be okay to just release the connection.

This won't actually drop the connection but it will consume the rest of 
the stream.  To force a connection close you will have to handle your 
own connection management (not recommended) so that you will have access 
to the HttpConnection object.

There are two reasons that I can think of for a connection to get 
frozen.  One of them is connection timeout and the other is SO_TIMEOUT. 
  SO_TIMEOUT can be set via HttpClient.setTimeout().  This is the 
timeout when reading from a connection.

I hope this helps.
