Hi,
I plan to buy a J2ME-able cell phone this Xmas. I wonder if anyone has any experience with the phone MOTOROLA RAZR V3? battery, memory, jar file size ? or should I look for a Nokia?

Thanks.

Hi Carolyn,

Can't offer any comments on this cellphone since I don't have one. All I can say is, it looks stylish!

According to this website, this model supports CDLC 1.0, MIDP 2.0, WMA 1.0 and MMAPI 1.0. Couldn't find these information in the RAZR V3's specification.

You might want to check out the following websites for the reviews given by the users who had purchased this model.

The Sun J2ME website provides a list of not up-to-date J2ME-enable devices here.

If you are buying the RAZR with the intention of running your own MIDlets, you should make sure you can provision applications to it.

The last time I installed my own MIDlets on a RAZR, I had to go through some complicated steps involving a SEAM editor to hack the phone before it would allow me to install an application over a cable. I could not simply download my MIDlet over the air.

william i am trying to install on this flat phone and its driving me nuts.
it doesn't accept midlet via bluetooth..........tried with the cable and my midway application is not seeing it.
comlaining that its port is different.

i was shocked.........because it was in the phones manual.
so where di it go??

There is a motocoder website.

Download the Motorola J2ME SDK (and other tools) for your device.

I don't know how often this list of J2ME devices from Sun is updated, but it's well worth a look:
