Please can someone enlighten me on how i can push an application to people's mobile phone with or without going through the mobile operator.
You usually can't. The operator is trying to A) make money and B) protect people from malware. So they usually charge a fee for digitally signing and distributing an app. You can see it in a fairly extreme case with Apple's iStore, where they reserve the right to refuse to allow certain types of apps to be installed, including JVMs and even a Commodore 64 emulator.
If you have physical access to the device, you can install over the wire instead of over the telephone network, using the same process that's used to test apps.

The only problem with that idea is that it assumes that all the targets are SmartPhones and therefore have desktop syncing software that includes a package install option. I think that lets out people who have something like the Motorola Razr.
