I need to know how to view the contents of my Nokia 3310 mobile like as in an explorer of some sort. Nokia 3310 is not java enabled but definitely its got to have something else which we can program into - or is it ? How do I get to program my 3310 ?
Thanks

Sorry, there's no way for users to program their Nokia 3310. If you want to program your Nokia phone, you'll have to buy a MIDP-enabled model (e.g. Nokia 3510i) or a Symbian-OS phone (e.g. Nokia 3650 or Nokia 9210i).
Even then, there's no way yet to use the MIDP APIs to view the contents of your phone (e.g. downloaded ringing tones, phone contact list). This sort of thing can be enabled by the JSR-75 PIM APIs, but no phone model yet supports those APIs.

But I got this data cable wire from an electronics store that is used to connect the nokia 3310 to the PC. I asked him if this was the one to connect to the PC & he said yes. The caption says NKI3310. If this is not used to upoad stuff onto it then what is this possibly used for ?

The Nokia 3310 was designed without official support for data cables, and Nokia itself doesn't sell a data cable for the 3310. However I have seen third parties advertising data cables for 3310, so maybe someone has found an 'unofficial' way to read and write the data inside a 3310, perhaps using an interface intended only for testing. If you do this, you probably risk invalidating your warranty (but I'm not a lawyer).
This sort of thing might allow you to browse the phone's ringing tones and contacts, etc., but still can't allow you to download new programs into the 3310 because it simply doesn't have any environment for running downloaded programs (e.g. a Java virtual machine).

I've no experience of using a cable like that. It doesn't do anything related to Java, so you're probably asking your question at the wrong place. There are lots of active web discussion sites where people discuss things like that cable of yours - try asking those people.

Hai friend,

You can use the serial cable to connect your 3310 to the PC. But for getting the contents from it you have use some programs like logomanager or TOxygen software. You can download your messages upload ringtones etc.
Or you can write programs in java using wireless toolkit.

Programs you write in Java using Wireless Toolkit (i.e. MIDP 'MIDlets') won't run in the Nokia 3310, even if you succeed in uploading them to the phone's memory using your cable. This is because the Nokia 3310 does not support MIDP, i.e. its 'firmware' software does not include a Java virtual machine. Without the Java virtual machine, the phone has no way to run your MIDlets.
