Hello guys;
As i said previously i have to develop project which send mail to any body.I have made program using midlets to access servlet.And currently taking training of ejb(i will use ejb particularly message driven bean as a consumer of messages from jms).
Problem is that I don't know how a real phone works, as far as the server connection is involved! When I will have my midlet loaded on the phone, and when i will push the "connect" button, what will happend? Must I subscribe to a special service, that will make the bridge between the phone and the server? Or the manufacturer of the phone automatically provide this service?
If it is the case of service provider From where i will get service.I have to buy domain for webserver and application server or is there any service provider available freely and what else i have to do to make it real
Need Your response,will be very thankful.

Hi there,
I have try using Midlet on Nokia 9210 mobile phone. When I click on the "connect" button, it will prompt me for a dial up to my ISP. After dialing up, the process will be as usual.
I suppose using GPRS will create the same result.
Hope this may help.
Warmest Regards,
a sanjuan

sorta late, but i'll note:
it depends on your service provider. e.g., if you are developing on nextel phones, in order to use network aware apps (i.e. load it into the phone), you need a quick email confirmation from iden motorola. you then just use the installation software to install the app and you're good to go. oh, yeah, you also need the powerapps plan if you're using http.
I agree. Here's the link:
