d)MIDP Version: Example, Profile/MIDP-2.1 Configuration/CLDC-1.1

the above information can be collected from Nokia’s website from device details.

5.Go to the options of Mozilla Firefox and under Default User Agent go to Edit User Agent and the Import the .xml file from the location you have saved it.


6.Now open and download what ever you want.

7. Your Download may be file or jad file, the conversion is easy, here is how to do it.
