    Red face Midlet not getting started in N72


    I have a small program which tests the Location of the user.
    When running in Emulator the latitude and longitude measurements are given as zero's.
    But when i am deploying the application in My Nokia N72 model, the application is not getting started.

    I'm posting the code below.

    Any help or suggestions will be appreciated.

    package hello;

    import javax.microedition.midlet.*;
    import javax.microedition.lcdui.*;
    import javax.microedition.location.*;

    public class HelloMIDlet extends MIDlet implements CommandListener,Runnable {

    Command Exit = new Command("Exit",Command.EXIT,0);
    Command next;
    public static Display dis;
    Form f = null;Form f1 = null;
    public HelloMIDlet() {

    dis = Display.getDisplay(this);

    public void startApp() {

    public Form FirstForm()
    f1=new Form("FirstForm");
    next = new Command("Next", Command.OK, 1);
    return f1;
    public Form SecondForm()
    f=new Form("Waiting...");
    f.append("Finding for location...");

    try {
    Criteria c=new Criteria();
    LocationProvider lp=LocationProvider.getInstance(c);
    Location loc=lp.getLocation(60);
    QualifiedCoordinates qc=loc.getQualifiedCoordinates();
    f.append("Alt: "+qc.getAltitude());
    f.append("Lat: "+qc.getLatitude());
    f.append("Long: "+qc.getLongitude());

    } catch(Exception e) {
    f.append("Exception: "+e);
    return f;
    public void pauseApp() {}

    public void destroyApp(boolean destroy) {}

    public void commandAction(Command c, Displayable s) {
    if (c == Exit) {
    if(c == next)
    Thread t = new Thread(this);

    public void run() {
    throw new UnsupportedOperationException("Not supported yet.");

    Please respond at the earliest.

    Hey Welcome to the Forum Nokia Discussion Boards..
    But when i am deploying the application in My Nokia N72 model, the application is not getting started.
    Well if you check the Nokia N72 Technical details then you will come to know that this device does not support the Location API. Hence the app that you had developed is not working.

    Please check the details Here
    Thanks with Regards,

    Hello buthpur.kiran.mavin,

    Location API information on supported Nokia platform Editions (for both Series 40 and Symbian platforms) is available in Forum Nokia Java Developer's Library:

    Java Developer's Library 3.5 > Implementation notes > (JSR-179) Location API > Changes between releases
