Symbian Signed is a testing and certification programme. If you are writing an application to be deployed on Symbian-based phones, then you 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. 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 answers to many of the most common signing questions.

If you've used Symbian Signed before...
The signing process is virtually unchanged: Both Express Signed and Certified Signed are still available for you to use, and both of these signing mechanisms require that 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 Q3 2011, 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?
