Hi,

Are J2ME applications dependent on the carrier in some way. I know that the network should be 2.5G or higher.

Do the midlets work on both CDMA and GSM based carriers. For example Sprints is a CDMA based carrier and AT & T is a GSM based carrier.

J2ME midlets don't even have to be on a mobile phone at all. Or even a networked device. J2ME midlets will run on my old Handspring Visor PDA as long as they don't attempt to use networking or talk to phone-only resources. Or, for that matter, Bluetooth, since this particular unit can only network via USB or infrared.

My question was specific to midlets that carry out network communication... send/receive data to/from server...

During my last contract we tested a connected application on T-Mobile, Boost, Sprint, and Cingular (AT&T) using Motorola, IDEN (Motorola), and Nokia devices.

The application performed as designed on all networks. The network protocol was REST (XML over HTTP).
