I am unable to install ani MIDlets on a Sagem Cosy phone. I've tried - simple copying to the phone and clicking on the file (both jad and jar), nothing happens - trying every option in the Entertainment -> Games and Entertainment -> Applications menus - there should be an options like "Install from a local file" - nothing - putting the files on a web server - failure, even after I've set the MIME types in the .htaccess file Is there anything else I can do?


1. Create simple html-file (put correct jar and jad names in href links): <html> <body>
<h1>Install Java Application</h1> <p>Select midlet to install</p>
<a href="./USBTest.jar"> USBTest.jar</a> <br> <a href="./USBTest.jad"> USBTest.jad</a>
</body> </html>
2. Copy created html-file and jars/jads to the same folder on the phone, e.g. Others folder.
3. On the phone, go to Multimedia and select your html-file - it will be opened in HTML browser.
4. In HTML browser, select link either for jar or jad - phone will start to install application. Note that installing from jad might not work due to missing certificates, etc. In this case, try to install jar file (just select jar-link in html browser).

I have had this before, get yourself a butter knife, slide it gently into the space, and try to maneurver the dvd back a little, and while you have the butter knife in, push your open/close button, hope this works for you it did for me!
