Hi, Has any one deployed and used Java Midlet on GSM Network (CSD 9.6 Kbps)? If so please explain the effect. I have come across cases where it is used in GPRS networks. But I have searched the net for understanding the implications of using Java Midlets on GSM CSD 9.6 Kbps networks. All products - Nokia , Siemens etc.. claim that their Java Phons can be used even in GSM CSD 900/1800 networks. But no practical examples and experience could be found. I am working for a GSM Operator and I am trying to find out the possibility. Of course, there could be some pit falls on the connectivity response times to support OTA midlet downloads in GSM CSD (9.6 Kbps - Not a always-on connectivity like GPRS but the data call has to be dialled out). Please let me know any of your experiences in above subject... Regards Muthu

I always use GPRS nowadays, but I have used CSD (and HSCSD) for MIDlets without problems. For instance, the Nokia 3410 is a MIDP phone that doesn't support GPRS, so with it you always use CSD. We regularly downloaded MIDlets to our 3410 using CSD, and ran networked MIDlets on it successfully.

David, could explain more or share some code to enable us to try this out at our end.
