    Running a location based Java application in the background

    I have a Java ME application running on a GPS enabled phone which gets coordinates and sends them to a web server. Can I run this application in the background after the user has given the permission to get coordinates and use GPRS to send them.

    It depends on the phone model (and its operating system), whether MIDlet in the background can continue executing. What phone models did you have in mind for your application?

    I intend to run the applications on Symbian S60v3 and S60v5 phones with GPS built in.

    those platforms support multi-tasking so yes it should be possible..
    just use Display.setCurrent(null)
    to place in background...
