    Lightbulb how to update my java?

    sup

    I wanted to update my java app on this phone: Nokia 5130 but i don't know which is the right one for me. The reason is because this phone won't allow me to install 1.5 MB games : (

    I also want to see all my game to load faster.

    Would updating my java on my current phone help my above case?

    thanks in advance

    Re: how to update my java?

    It is not possible to update Java on your phone. Several issues why you cannot do what you want:

    1. Java is integrated into the phone's operating system. It cannot be updated separately from the rest of the operating system.

    2. Any updated versions of your phone's operating system will have the same 1Mb limit. This limit is deliberate.

    3. Any games you have seen of 1.5Mb are written for other phones, not yours, and will probably not work on your phone anyway. There are many differences between models of phone. For example, your phone might not have enough memory (it cannot be upgraded), or it may lack particular features. Each "JAR" file is specific to certain models of phone. Game publishers may produce as many as 100 different JAR files for a single game, to work on different models. You need to have the correct version for your phone.

    4. The speed at which games load is largely down to the processing power of the device. You cannot upgrade this.

    If you want to run different games on your phone, you need to buy a new phone.

    For more help using your Nokia product, go to Nokia Support.

    Best option will be to upgrade your phone.. to any S60 5th edition, and you will get unlimited jar size and will able to install large games working at a better speed.

    thanks,

    atm I luv my current phone, I just wish it has bigger screen ; p but i must resist the urge to upgrade because I'll just end up wasting money like those Ipoders.
