I've done a bit of java programming, I've never touched any j2me stuff. I know nothing about it, but I finnally got a cellphone that actually has graphics/games that are "powered by java".

I have absolutely no clue as to how to go about installing custom software onto a cellphone (or if it is even feasible for an enduser to do that).

I guess I don't even know where to begin looking... and am wondering if anyone here could point me in the right direction.

any help is appreciated.

Personally, I used the Wireless Java, Second Edition book from Apress and started coding in like two days. There is a new third edition out, unofrtunately, they didn't get as good a review as I had given for the previous version. I don't think much has changed though? Shrug.

There are some really nice tutorials at java.sun.com on the J2ME page.

The other thing to find out is what versions and APIs your phone supports. Unfortunately that is difficult from the vendors materials, since they don't care. Just Kidding. The vendor should have a developer website that will tell you, or it might be on the list of devices at Sun's website. Look to the left menu to find that page.
