hi guys and gals,

am having problem deploying my tested program unto a samsung(free i) phones,motorola and an ericsson phones.
presently am using the nokia application installer to load my apps onto the testing phones and also the bluetooth connectivity on my laptop.
peeps , i also noticed that when i deploy with midp1.0-cldc1.0 it works on some phones e.g nokia 6820,6600 , but when i deploy as midp2.0-cldc1.1 it doesn't work on these phones but it works on nokia 6230.
why this?
and i would love anyone with good idea to let me know ho to deploy to d phones mentioned above.
[i am using suns J2ME WIRLELESS TOOLKIT for compilation and packaging ]

When you specify the MIDP and CLDC the phone has to support the versions you have set. That is why a MIDP 2.0 CLDC MIDlet will go onto the 6230 but not the 6600.

To deploy to a samsung, the only way is by using O.T.A (Over the Air) and downloading it to the phone. Some sites might host the midlets or you can run a server on your machine. The same goes for Motorolas, all O.T.A. Even though the phones have infra red or bluetooth they still won't recognise a jar

On all Motorola phones that I know, you can deploy via data cable. Motorola provides special applications that you should use for the purpose. For iDEN phones use the Java App. Loader from idenphones.motorola.com and for the rest use the Midway application from www.motocoder.com

Just to add my two cents, Motorola, as far as I have seen, will only support installation of J2ME apps via data cable. I use myJal for motorola that allows me to install my apps. I've never been able to install via OTA provisioning.

Nokia, Ericsson and the Sprint devices supports OTA.

thanks for your 2 cents it was nice enough.
hey guys most of what you all have said i have noticed is true.
samsung doesn't understand *.jar i was kind off surprised.
on motorola i used a data cable, but i haven't been able to set up my midlets to be able to be downloaded by clients using gprs, anybody got any ideas on how i can do this ? as in setting up my midlets so that clients can download it via gprs?
