I've been building applications on the Sprint network and there is a mechanism to "enable developer root" on those devices so I can build Java applications that access protected API's and test (code sign) locally. Before deployment I then send my tested code to Sprint for signing that supports wide-distribution and their certificate does not require the developer unlock.
Is there something I can do to a Nokia 2600 on AT&T that will allow me to develop and locally test? I need access to JSR-82 and specifically API's that even a Verisign cert has "no access". So I can't even try a line of code without a partnership with AT&T.
Is there an unlock that I can buy that will allow me unlock my phone for development? This sounds like a bad chick/egg problem. AT&T wants me to send them my app for signing (and they want to test the app of course) but I cannot even try the app myself and none of the Bluetooth API's perform anything useful in the emulator.
