    "Allow app to use network to send/receive..."

    I've read that messages such as the above are as a result of using unsigned midlets. So, is the only way to prevent them popping up by using signed midlets? What about the Midlet-Permissions entry in the descriptor file.

    Is it possible to set up your own phone to not ask these questions? Like you would a browser or something. Or can't you just get the app to ask once during install and not every time during execution.

    if you have to get it signed, what is the easiest way, and does it cost?

    Signing will avoid the popping up messges. Even if Midlet-Permissions entry is there in the JAD and MF, pop up messages will be asked if your app is not signed.
    Which phone are you using? In S60 phones you can use self signed certificates.
    Here are some previous discussions regarding signing.

    Ok, i'll check those out. I'm designing for a 6600, so that self-signed certificates sounds interesting. thanks

    First of all, there is no garantee 3rd party trust level siging will help to avoid these messages. On many phones the default permissions do not change, additional permissions might not be granted.

    On which Nokia Series (device) are you? In Nokia Series 60 you change the permissions via Menu > Tools > Manager > your MIDlet > Options > Suite Settings. In Nokia Series 40 it is along with your MIDlet in the Options.

    Why do you think spindriftpages.net is the only source? Even they have some technology misunderstandings.

    Re: "Allow app to use network to send/receive..."

    Okay, so I'm sure it might not be the only decent source, but it's the one that i think will suit my needs the best from those I've found, as it does a very nice point by point on how to do it for series 60. I just want to get it done. The nokia guide on signing is similarly quite useful although long-winded.

    I did try setting the midlet trust settings on my 6600, but for Network Access (what I need) the best setting you can get is "Ask First Time". I'm getting the firmware upgraded at the moment, so I'm hoping I'll be able to get "Always Allowed" as an option once I've followed the self-signing procedure. Somehow I'm not too optimistic, though.

    Gattuso, please, do not cross-post. This makes it very difficult to answer your question as it needs more time to reply. Furthermore, a Nokia 6600 is a complete different Feature Pack than your Nokia N70.
