Im sorry to repeating my question but Im having a hard time getting straight forward answer. Is there an other way to discover a midletsuite, then using WAP. (And Downloading it)??? All I really want to know is how can I with my cellphone insall new midlets using the OTA. So far I understand WAP is one way of doing it, but is there an other one?

Sebastian,
What phone are you trying to test your MIDlet on?
If you are specifically concerned with testing the OTA transfer of your MIDlet, you have the following options:
1) Host your MIDlet on a web server and then type the web address where you jad file is located into your phone's WAP browser .
2) Use a tool like Jad Helperto send a text message to your phone that contains the link to your jad file. This is similar to the first option but makes it so you don't have to manually enter the web address where your application is located.
3) Use WAP Push to send your MIDlet to your phone. This technique is used by many bigger distribution channels such as Handango.com and Nextel's iDEN Update. This is more technically complex and involves using WAP gateways. WAP Push works differently depending on the wireless carrier you are using. For more information on this method check out WAP Push Overview.
If you are trying to simply test the MIDlets functionality on your phone you might be able to avoid doing an OTA transfer. This depends on your phone. Many phones can connect to a computer and allow MIDlet transfers using a USB cable, bluetooth or IR.
Hope this helps...

This is what Im trying to find out. Im aware of several ways to get my MIDlet to the phone bye cable, IR, & Bluetooth. Thats the way Im going to do when Im testing my MIDlet. But I wanna know what options are for those who dont have a cabel, IR or Bluetooth. I think thats major of the javaphones user dont have an connection between thier phones and CPU. But based on your message, every OTA technique is some how related to WAP?
