You could download the BREW API SDK from Qualcomm. It comes with an emulator for mobile devices so you can develop and test software without having an acutal device.
There are also J2ME SDK's available from Nokia and Sun so you can do Java development.
I would highly recommend getting some books that will help you to find the tools you need and to get started.

You can use C++ or Java.

If you're developing for Symbian phones theres some info here.

If you're just starting out do a google for mobile basic, its pretty easy to get started with.

The quickest and easiest way to get into mobile development is J2ME. It's the most common platform, all the tools are free, and there are no restrictions (in 99% of cases) when it comes to deploying the app to the phone. The downsides is that it's usuallly the least powerful platform, and you have to write the code in Java.

The second main option is BREW. The SDK and emulators are free, but if you want to deploy your application to a real phone you'll need to shell out some cash. Main languages are C/C++.

There are other options (Symbian, WinCE, Mophun, Doja, etc.).

But if you want to work with actual hardware and not just emulators, then the choice is mostly up to which phone you have or want to develop for.
