Hi folks,

I posted this question here since I wasn't sure where else I could.

Has anyone successfully done this on their mobile? I manage to get as far as the confirmation screen asking if I wanted to install the midlet. When I click "Yes" I get an error saying "Failed to download....". It's a bit frustrating really...

Would love to hear anyone else's experience on this.

Cheers,
Dany.

I think it must come with J2ME runtime - I have installed and run Java games before. It even asked if I wanted to install the Midlet - I'm assuming it knows something about J2ME stuff...

Ok, it sounds like it then... Perhaps the Kiwibank server filters the client connections based on browser user-agent?

That's a very good point! Just out of curiosity I plugged in the URL into my laptop's IE and it was redirected to a different page. I'm assuming if my phone is reporting as something that doesn't match their filter it will end up to that same incorrect page. I have submitted a question to Kiwibank about this...I wonder if I'll ever get an answer/solution on this...

Can you download the JAR file to your PC, copy it to the iMate and then install it manually?

If that fails with the same message, you may have a issue with the J2ME certificates. The certificate used to sign the JAR package may not be from one of the providers supported by the J2ME runtime. I'm not sure how you can change that on the iMates (my certificate troubles were with midlets on my Motorola E398).

HTH,
