    How to embed an app in to Nokia 1616 and 1661

    Good afternoon folks,

    I don’t know if you guys can answer my question but if you could it will be much appreciated. I got 2 different Nokia cell phone models with me: the 1616 and the 1661.

    As I know, these phones can run apps in C++ . However, they don’t have network connectivity as well as GRPS/EDGE, 3G, USB, Bluetooth, Nokia PC Suite or whatever any other form of connectivity but SMS and firmware updating.
    Having this in mind, what I need is to embed an application on these specific models ( Nokia 1616 and 1661). The app is pretty similar of a Quiz and at each end of a day its gonna generate itself a resume of the necessary information which needs to be sent via SMS to a central, in order to be processed.
    Do you guys know if that is technically possible? Is it too complicated?
    Another detail is that this app would need to be installed in hundreds of devices. So, would it be possible to install all of them at the same time, like a remote installation? Or will it need to be installed in each cell phone one by one, one at the time?
    Thanks in advance, and happy 2011!

    Those phone models are "Series 30" based, very basic functionality models, and do not support any kind of user-installable software (C++, Java or otherwise), or PC connectivity. There is no way that you can add, install or embedd any kind of an applications on them by yourself. Only Nokia can, via a firmware update that includes such an app, but I suspect they're not going to do so.

    For Nokia phones, those that are listed on the Forum Nokia devices page can be used for app development (Series 40, Symbian and maemo based devices):
