    Permissions in signed application

    I have I signed application for Nokia 2660.

    This application makes HTTP connections and when the application is opened the device prompts a message asking for user permission.

    The user can previously opening the application make a configuration so that this prompt never appear.

    This works fine.

    When a new version of the application is installed this configuration made by the user is lost and he has to make it again.

    Is there a way to avoid re-configuring the application?

    Any suggestions? Do you know any workaround?

    Thanks.

    Re: Permissions in signed application

    When a new version of the application is installed
    Is the application updated or removed and reinstalled ?

    Try OTA upgrade with same / diff. version no. of the app;s and see what happens.

    thanks,

    No, this is deliberate. It's to prevent you from getting permissions in the first version, then adding lots of extra network connections (or whatever) in the new version without the user knowing.

    The application is updated.

    What is OTA upgrade?

    OTA upgrade means upgrade Over-the-Air upgrade, not by Nokia-PC suite or Bluetooth... but as graham has mentioned the user is required to set the app permissions again for every new version is by design.

    The Best workaround will be to, educate the user about this and show him a dailog before every upgrade reminding him to set the required permission again before launching the new updated version.

    thanks,
