Im sorry Davide, but I have no experience with this type of applications.
You might say, that im on the other side of the fence.

Try to talk to your operator; you most likely need a special account or
set up.

Hi,

yeah, talking to the operator is what you need. Also read up about
"Push Proxy Gateways (PPG)". Generally, for a moderate fee of some thousands bucks, you'll get an HTTP call into the server of your choice when a message designated for you is sent by a user. The message will include source information, so then you can send a WAP push (again, if provider allows) or SMS push back to the phone that originated the message. Then the user can download the midlet.
