    Adding link to MIDlet in phone's main menu

    Hi

    I'd like to offer a service that uses a J2ME app as a central part, but I'd like it to be available fairly instantly from the main menu (of a Nokia 6230/6230i).

    Is possible during OTA deployment (or even afterwards) to change the phone's main menu and add a shortcut link to an installed J2ME application?

    Re: Adding link to MIDlet in phone's main menu

    hi,

    I don't know that platform (s40 2nd edition) but by default applications (midlets) go to "Appliations" folder if I'm not wrong (with Games/Collections subfolders),
    we cannot change that behavior (its outside of current J2me capabilities),

    regards,
    peter

    Re: Adding link to MIDlet in phone's main menu

    On S40 mobile phones you can advise people to use the left menu button ("Go to") for activating the "Collection" menu option. This will bring mobile user directly to the mobile applications folder on S40 mobile phones. Not always "Collection" option is added to the "Go to" menu, but this is the shortest path to mobile applications on S40.

    On newer S40 phones it is also possible to assign the soft keys to directly start a specific application. I do not know if this option is available on 6230 though

    Re: Adding link to MIDlet in phone's main menu

    Thanks for your replies.

    Axs: I didn't know of the existance of the 'Go To'... 'Collections' quick menu, but that will help make things a bit easier for the user.

    Peter: I'd expected as much... that I couldn't change the menus. The only examples I've seen of custom entries in the main menu of a phone appear to be saved to the SIM itself before shipment to the end user.

    Hartti: The soft keys idea looks promising, I'll look into this thanks.
    Assuming I can do these on a 6230i, do you know if I can set these either from OTA or from within a J2ME application?

    OTA: Not to my knowledge
    J2ME: Unfortunately no.
