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).
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
