    I highly doubt that is possible. As that would be a major security risk. Imagine installing some misc app that starts using money all the time for no apprent reason for eg and you cannot uninstall it.

    They're right, you cannot.

    You may find documentation that refers to adding the following to the MANIFEST.

    Code:
    Nokia-MIDlet-Block-Uninstall: true
    However, this can be used only with applications pre-installed by Nokia or the network operator, you cannot use this for your own application (for the security reasons NightStalkerDNS refers to above).

    Some devices allow you to display a warning when the user selects delete, by adding a message to the JAD or MANIFEST.

    Code:
    MIDlet-Delete-Confirm: All data will be deleted.
    This will be displayed (on devices that support this feature) along with an "are you sure (yes/no)?" dialogue.

    Hi,

    Its simply not possible in J2ME. But I think it may be possible in Symbian C++.
