Correct me if Im wrong, if I have a cellphone Im able to download a jad + jar-file and execute it on my device. If my device support one or more of the following technologies: GSM or GPRS (Using WAP), UTM (aka 3G)? Im I also able to communicate width my MIDlet through the technologies I named above? Ofcourse my device must support J2ME for executing the MIDlet.

Yep. Except that you don't communicate with a midlet through any communication protocol but through the phone's keypad

Well you have a point there, what I tried to ask was if my MIDlet could fetch info on the net using for example GSM.

Sure. In MIDP 1.0, you have access to the Internet with HTTP (MIDP 2.0 brings along some more, including HTTPS). Whether the HTTP traffic is going over GSM, GPRS, or UMTS, doesn't matter. Someone recently (1-2 days ago) asked a question about sending stuff to a server over HTTP -- you should take a look at that thread for some links to check out.
