    Newbie question: Writing a cron type app for Nokia 6300

    Hi!

    I am just wondering if this is doable: I would like to write an app that schedules events on my 6300. Ie, ideally it would go into "Connectivity" and trigger a SyncML sync, say once a day. Same with fetching IMAP email.

    Is this doable? I program for a living (mostly C++ and Java), but have never written an app for a cellphone.

    Java ME has a feature called PushRegistry which allows you to start your application (MIDlet) at certain event (like incoming SMS) or at certain time. Unfortunately you cannot then direct the native applications or other applications to do certain stuff (like email client to fect the emails), meaning that you would need to implement all the jobs you want to do in your MIDlet.

    Thanks for your quick reply!

    Ugh.. That would then be prohibitively much work for such a simple task. If I understand you correctly, I cannot trigger any builtin functions, which means I will have to create an entire SynML client app?

    Problem for me is that the Nokia Intellisync app works fine, but will not sync calendar (I need a S 60 phone for that). Fortunately, SyncML works fine for calendar and IMAP for mail, but the downside is that I have to initiate the sync maually.
