during the application development process, without the need to have the devices at hand.

The RDA service consists of a device pool and a desktop client application. The application provides access to the screen

test applications on selected devices, you need only an RDA account and a PC with a web browser. You can use multiple services
simultaneously and can select and reserve specific devices.

The RDA service is available to all registered Nokia Developer members.
How do I get started with the Remote Device Access (RDA) service?
Go to the Remote Device Access website. If you’re not already logged in to the Nokia Developer site, log in with your Nokia Developer user name and password.
After logging in, you’ll see a listing of available phones and a link to the RDA site’s Reservations section. You can make reservations through either the phone list or the Reservations link. Once you’ve reserved one or more
specific devices, you can use the devices you selected during the reservation times. For more information, see the RDA instructions provided on the Nokia Developer site and in the Help section of the RDA application.
How much does the Remote Device Access (RDA) service cost?
Registered Nokia Developer members can use RDA free of charge. Each member’s account has a daily usage limit for RDA devices,
which is reset automatically each day.
I’m trying to launch the Remote Device Access (RDA) application but I get a Java™ error. What should I do?
The most typical cause of a Java™ error on a PC is that the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) is either outdated or not installed.
The Java Web Start application, which is an RDA system requirement and usually is included in JRE, requires JRE 5.0 or later.
You can download JRE from Oracle’s Sun Developer Network website. Note that you can have multiple versions of JRE installed, in case you need
to keep an older version for emulator or other purposes.
What are the network-connectivity features of the Remote Device Access (RDA) devices?
The RDA devices are supplied with data SIM-cards, and many of the devices are also WLAN-enabled. Use the GRPS- and WLAN-access
points to test data services. Incoming phone calls and incoming short message service (SMS) messaging are also enabled, for
testing of incoming interruptions.
