I typically use Netbeans IDE for my JavaME projects. I guess Eclipse's should also be be very good. You may also want to consider development kits from mobile phone vendors like Nokia, Motorola, etc. I guess these tools help development for their platform more direct and easier. Just note that your applications may begin to walk away from the standard JavaME APIs.

Can you give me some links to development kits, are they opensource or do they have to be purchased?
Although the definitive SDK for J2ME is the one from Sun, most phone vendors provide kits tailored for their particular products. Sadly, few of these kits run under any OS but MS Windows, although it's often possible to adopt files from them. You can find kits in the developer areas of websites of vendors such as Sprint, Nokia, Motorola, etc.
Customer surveys are for companies who didn't pay proper attention to begin with.
