    I would suggest checking the distribution channels you are planning to use, and seeing what kind of advertising they are allowing.

    Hello,
    I think that the best way for WP7 would be the official SDK, which has been outlined above.

    As for Symbian 3, you can essentially pick what you want
    The lines above are the best I have to offer.If anyone of you is of more advanced knowledge, I ask for your patience and understanding! - unknown arab poet

    There are problems with the Advertising SDK on the RTM Mango.

    Mostly app gets dehydrated (window key/search key), before the adcontrol starts to load and no ads will be displayed. Upon returning to the app, the adcontrol gets a nullexception error and then simultaneously crashes the app.

    I seen this behavior on both XNA and SL applications. SDK documentation, header files and library

    You can also use admob / google adsense, they have a sdk for windows phone. Good thing about Google's solution is that it works worldwide. Whereas the MSFT ads sdk only supports USA for now.
    But the Google ads sdk seems to have bad performance, the last time I checked.

    Re: Please suggest some Advertising SDK

    But the Ad service works only with test credentials.
    Code snippets
    public MainPage()
    {
    InitializeComponent();

    // ApplicationID = "Test_client", AdUnitID = "Image480_80",

    AdControl adControl = new AdControl("test_client", // ApplicationID
    "Image480_80", // AdUnitID
    true); // isAutoRefreshEnabled
    // Make the AdControl size large enough that it can contain the image
    adControl.Width = 480;
    adControl.Height = 80;

    Grid grid = (Grid)this.LayoutRoot.Children[1];
    grid.Children.Add(adControl);
    }


    I have submitted my app to pubCenter and received an Application ID and and AdUnitID.I have followed the steps exactly as mentioned in the SDK documentation, but, when I transferred the .XAP file to my development phone (Nokia Lumia800) and launched the app, I am able to see only an empty box, I am not able to see any text or banner ads in the Ad Control component.
    Please help

    Re: Please suggest some Advertising SDK

    Perhaps, you can try Inneractive Ad SDK for Windows Phone 7. You can register from here.

    It is very easy to be implemented, you just need to set some parameters and call this method

    // Display the full screen ad dialog
    if (!InneractiveAd.DisplayAd("IA_Test",
    InneractiveAd.IaAdType.IaAdType_FullScreen,
    null, 0))
    {
    MessageBox.Show("This application is free but it needs internet connection.
    Please configure your internet connection and try again.");
    NavigationService.GoBack();
    }

    Thank you jeffrey. Microsoft Ad SDK is working when I changed my language and country settings to US instead of India.

    Are you Microsoft PubCenter to advertise on your apps? The current list of supported countries is this one and includes India. Wondering why you had to change from India to US?

    Austria
    Belgium
    Canada
    Denmark
    Finland
    France
    Germany
    Hong Kong SAR
    India
    Italy
    Japan
    Mexico
    Netherlands
    Norway
    Spain
    Sweden
    Switzerland
    United Kingdom
    United States

    If you have an app that the language is Indian and that the main target is India, setting a different country may not be a good idea.
