Hi there and welcome to Javranch!

I'm not a J2ME developer but performing a Google search on J2ME and Bluetooth returned me Sun's guide on J2ME and Bluetooth as the top result.

Hope that helps!

I used a nice bluetooth framework called "Marge".
There are many demo apps in the website. I used the blue chat demo as a sample to connect a nokia E61 to a ZEBRA bluetooth printer.
Remember to set the URL concatenating with the port (SERVICE_URL = "btspp://"+ remoteDevice.getBluetoothAddress()+":1" in my case it was port 1.

I agree. Here's the link:
