    MIDlet signing is not compulsory/mandatory. As to why your program fails, I don't know.

    Do you have the network code in the same thread with UI code? My guess is that your midlet is not able to connect to the server properly and therefore there is no canvas to be shown (the midlet never reaches that part of the code).

    Separate the network connections to a separate thread from UI. Also make sure that the access point is set correctly for you phone and midlets (there are a number of discussion threads on this topic on these boards)

    Ravi,
    In case you have missed, please check whether you can acces Wap/GPRS through the default phone browser. Also check that you have given proper permissions in the JAD and MF. Does the permission question poppes up in the real device when trying to connect to server ? Make sure that you allow the permission dialogs.

    Regards

    Having a working browser (WAP) does not say anything about MIDlet connectivity on a Nokia 6230i. Double check issues related to this, too.

    Yep! That I know. :-P But I just want to know whether his WAP/GPRS service is enabled by the network operator. In case the service was not activated!

    Re: Is signing Compulsory for midlets?

    Hi experts,

    My question is not related to the previous questions, but related to the title...

    I've never used a nokia phone before. And i'm planning to get a nokia phone, one of my target is with the S60 3rd edition. I'm a programmer. Thought it would be fun if i'm able to code something in my own phone.

    Knowing from my friend that for S60 3rd edition, someone can't just install his own .sis to the phone. Must get it signed first. I don't have plan to get a developer license to have my app signed as i just do it as a hobby, just for fun.

    I'm planning to go to J2ME way. So, my question is, can i code my own J2ME app, without J2ME signed, and install it in a S60 3rd edition phone? Can i utilize all the phone's features without getting J2ME signed?

    Many thanks for the answer.

    The new platform security of 3rd edition does not affect the Java ME security framework. So you can install unsigned midlets on 3rd Edition devices the same way as before and they are prompting for permissions (more or less often) from user when trying to access restricted methods.

    Hartti,

    Have you tried with self signed certificates in S60 3rd Ed devices like N91 or 3250? Does they work fine as they did in S60 2nd Ed devices like 6630? If you have a S60 3rd Ed device could you please give a try and send in the results?

    Regards
    Gopal

    Gopal, you cannot add your own certificates on the S60 3rd Edition devices to use them in Java midlet signing.
