JAL is a Motorola iDEN tool. I found this page on JAL Lite which might be useful to you. I doubt that JAL works with non-Motorola phones. If your phone is not a Motorola phone, tell us what manufacturer and model it is and we'll hopefully be able to tell you how to download MIDlets to that.
No, different phones load MIDlets differently. Often the phone comes with some PC software (e.g. Nokia PC Suite) that allows you to synchronize the calendar & contacts and download MIDlets to the phone using serial cable, infra-red or Bluetooth. In some it's as simple as sending the MIDlet files to the phone over infra-red or Bluetooth 'OBEX' file transfer. Most phones support downloading MIDlets from the Internet using their built-in Web or WAP browsers. See the thread here with subject "how to install a midlet" for information on how to do this using a WAP WML page. Again, we can probably help you if you need to know the procedure for some specific phone model.
well i'm trying to find out how to load an j2me email app to motorola's i50sx both through the data cable and through the web and where could i find an emulator for i50sx??? and when does iDEN SDK 3.0 comes into the picture if i already have the J2ME Wireless Toolkit and Sun One Studio 4 Mobile Edition???

Any Motorola or Nextel people listening? This isn't exactly my speciality... That link to JAL Lite explains that you can't use it to download MIDlets that use networking: that would include your e-mail MIDlet. I think that you need some special developer account with e.g. Nextel in order to be allowed to download your own MIDlets that use networking. You'll probably have more luck asking this question at Motorola's iDEN Developer Community. You might even find that it's documented in their FAQs.
