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.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
