Midlets are run in a "sandbox" and is denied any access to that kind of phone functionality.

I wonder if there are some specific phones that have the ablitiy
to enable this, have anybody used such functionality? I just wonder.

Thanks for your information.

If they did, then they wouldn't be J2ME phones. You see in order for a phone to be cldc/midp compliant, it must run in the sandbox and not be allowed to the internal parts of the phone, like turning it on and off. That would allow bad people to make phones stop working, and break security.

...and that would allow people to start calling it "Windows".
