How to load J2ME applications to the IDEN handsets

The iDEN developers have always faced the problem in loading the J2ME application to their iDEN handsets. Until late 2006 there have been restrictions on how many handsets a developer can use to upload applications. Motorola also had an authentication mechanism by which the developer had to get the local iDEN network provider's permission to use the iDEN web jal application loader. It all has changed.

NOW, Motorola has opened up these JALs to the developer community. There is no restriction or authentication any more. You just have to download the JAL application from below links and you can start using them already.

Personally I feel that this should have happened long ago. But it is better late than never. So here are the links. Based on which is your target phone you can download the appropriate loader.
