Java Mobile, Java ME for short, is an Internet
application used on mobile phones to help produce web pages accurately
on the device's screen. Many mobile phones are now able to use this
application, not just smart phones. If you have a China-made mobile
phone, which essentially is a clone of another brand of phone, you
probably don't have any user manuals or any other information regarding
the device. Because of this it is impossible to tell if the phone
supports Java ME until you attempt to install it.
Things You'll Need:
USB data cable
Download Java ME (see Resources). If you are using a Mac, click the "Mac OS Release" tab or if you are using a Windows computer, select "Windows Release" and then click "Download."
the USB data cable into the USB power port on your mobile phone, then
connect the opposite end of the cable into a USB port on the computer.
Click "Start," "Computer" and double-click the cell phone icon. This loads a window with all the files stored on the cell phone.
the Java ME download into the open window. If the cell phone is able to
take the file the data downloads directly to the phone. If not, you
receive an error message stating the device is unable to use the file.
Once the file has finished saving to the phone, disconnect it from the
computer and begin using your phone with the Java ME programming.
An alternative to the above
Java lets you download music and watch videos.
