    Re: Startup applications

    Did you meant to Auto-Start the application on phone boot? if yes then refer this : http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu...Management_API

    Re: Startup applications

    Go through the Startup List Management API to make an auto start application.

    It is not possible to do that reliably, see related discussion in http://www.developer.nokia.com/Commu...cation-is-slow

    Re: Startup applications

    This can not be done with regular API:s.
    You would need to partner the API from here: http://www.developer.nokia.com/Resources/Support/ (Create a ticket).
    This request is not free and might not be granted if your use-case and company details do not check out to be valid.

    Re: Startup applications

    Not really for 3rd party code. The devices have their own locking mechanism, what is wrong with that one?

    (EDIT after #9: believe Teemup, I am talking solely about the standard autostart API here)

    Re: Startup applications

    Like I said; there is a way, but you need a permission and API:s from Nokia.

    I guess you know the most likely hostile usages of this feature if the access for it was not restricted.

    Re: Startup applications

    Run it in the background then. You can find related articles in the Wiki, and in newer devices there is a dedicated one-liner call for it, AppUi::HideInBackground.
