Guess what - I got a brand new Nokia Colour 3510i for Christmas! Yay! Okay, now I have been reading Martin Wells' book "J2ME Game Programming" and have made a simple MIDP 1 midlet on the Wireless Toolkit. So my question would be "how do I copy my MIDLet from my PC's harddrive to my cute little Nokia phone?". I assume I need a special USB lead or something...^O_O^

This cable is probably what you want.

I also suggest downloading the Nokia PC Suite to make it easy to transfer you files from PC to phone. Install the cable driver before installing the PC Suite or you might have problems with it.

Good Luck!

or you can put your jar / jad on a website (such as your own pc! running windows built in iis) Then you can download via wap over gprs.... not ideal cause it costs per mb, but its handy as a stop gap to getting a cable or bluetooth dongle.

Of course if u have a router/firewall u need to set that up and know the ip address

But you need to remember to set up the MIME data types on the webserver
I think else it regards the files as text not binary i think ?!?!

You can also connect via infrared on most phones. It's not much different from using Bluetooth, though, really.
