    Is anyone out there?

    Hey,

    We have tried to communicate with nokia to get premium publisher status so we can distribute themes through the OVI store, but even after repeated emails, and submission of the application form, we still have not heard anything back, not even a confirmation of reciept of the for or email. This is not great for us as we are trying to work out a strategy for distributing through this channel, and to be honest, this is kind of leaving us in limbo at the moment...

    I can understand that this is a busy time for you guys at nokia, but not even receiving confirmation of the application is not great..

    I remember someone asking about publishing themes through ovi and it was informed that Theme distribution is not allowed as of now.

    ustwolondon, could you send me a private message with your businesses name (as listed in the Ovi Publish/Store system)? I'll see what I can dig up on the status of your application.

    I could be wrong, but didn't Nokia say that they only allowed themes and ringtones to be sold by major partners (i.e. very big companies)?

    That would explain why some themes are available but not very many.

    I feel that if its open to big companies then it should be opened up for small startups also.

    there are by all accounts a number of small companies registered as premuim members. I believe there is an element that you have to have public liability insurance so nokia are covered if you infringe on brands IPR.

    I might be wrong though... but still no word from nokia

    hey Matt,

    Have you received the form to fill out to request your status as an Ovi Publisher be upgraded to "Premium Publisher"? If not I can send it to you.

    Re: Is anyone out there?

    wow,

    3 weeks on and still have not received even a confirmation email saying the form has been received or has even started the application process, even though i have now submitted it through 3 different channels...

    I can completely understand that this is obviously a busy time for nokia, but to plan and spend time creating content for this platform, then not to even receive the most basic of auto reply emails is a bit of a joke.

    is there anyone there that can help me with this, or even shed any light on the process?

    I have to mention that I am in the same place. 5 emails to Ovi regarding this issue over two months and not a single reply. Now I have to resort to contact through this forum. Please respond to me.

    Well, I'm joining the club.
    I've filled out the premium publisher upgrade request application on June 15th, and still no answer on this.
    Any answer, even declined request, would be appreciated.
    Thank You
