By default, some S60 3rd Edition (for example, Nokia Eseries) devices only allow installation of trusted, that is, Symbian Signed applications. To also allow installation of self-signed (untrusted) applications, go to

Application Manager > Options > Settings > Software Installation

Change the setting from "Signed" to "All", if needed.

The error message shown to the end user is: "Certificate error. Contact the application supplier."
The application supplier should instruct the customer to check the settings in case the supplier delivers self-signed applications.

Note that the security settings may also differ in operator variants of S60 3rd Edition devices.
