Symbian Signed is the testing and certification programme. If you are writing an application to be deployed on Symbian-based phones, then you will need to know about Symbian Signed.

In terms of cost if you plan to deploy your application commercially you will need a Publisher ID which costs $200 per year and each time you sign a SIS file it will cost €10 using Express Signed and €150 if you use Certified Signed. Once your application has gone through Symbian Signed you can distribute it as you choose.


If you're new to Symbian Signed...

If you're new to Symbian Signed there's plenty of information available. Good places to start are the Complete Guide To Symbian Signed, which summarises the important articles in this category and organises them into one document, and the Symbian Signed User Guide, which provides specific "How To" information for using the Symbian Signed website. In addition, the Symbian Signed Q&As article contains the answers to many of the most common signing questions.

I want to sign my application so I can test it...

There are several options available to you, depending on how widely you want to run your test programme. Details can be found on the Testing Your Application page to help you make your decision.

I want to sign my application so that I can distribute...

There are two options available to you; the Distributing Your Application page is where you should get started in making your choice between them.

I have an unsigned application which I'd like to install onto my device...

The application will need to be signed before it can be installed. If it only has a few capabilities you can self sign it. If it requires more capabilities then you'll need a Developer Certificate.

If you've used Symbian Signed before...

The signing process is virtually unchanged: Express Signed and Certified Signed are all still available for you to use, and both of these signing mechanisms require you pass the Symbian Signed Test Criteria. Support Forums are now hosted at Nokia Developer here.

Developer Certificates are available to developers through the Symbian Signed website (As of 2011Q3 Developer Certificates are also available to individual developers through the site - Open Signed Online has been discontinued as it is no longer needed).

How can you get involved?

The Symbian Signed Team are keen to hear from people using Symbian Signed and to ensure that the process fulfills the needs of the whole community - developers, handset companies and network operators alike. Please post requests on the forum here.

You can also contact the team directly with your ideas at mailto://symbian.signed@nokia.com
