    It can only work on platform for which you developed your application. for example if you develope application using S60 2nd edition SDK, then its work only on device which support Platform S60 2nd edition.

    You can check platform of your device here.

    Re: Application compatibility

    The problem is at least twofold:
    - Symbian 6-7-8 and Symbian 9 are not compatible, there is a fundamental binary compatibility break between these releases, which includes change of paths and the file format used by the installer - just these two changes make it impossible to install the same thing on all S60 or all UIQ devices already
    - and these two major Symbian platforms also differ from each other, most notably on the UI layer - they look different, and they are also coded different.
    If you do not use any platform-specific feature (especially UI), it is possible to create code which runs on all Symbian 6-7-8 or all Symbian 9 devices - most examples in the Examples folder fall into this category (since they are code provided by Symbian) - an important common feature of them is that they are usually console-based.
