You need to know the Java language first. Then you need Java micro edition development tools. Not sure but I think it's called Java wireless toolkit. Do some readings about j2me.

If you decide to use java then you need an emulator first so that you can run your mobile apps on a computer before deploying it on mobile devices.
I will find time to come back and give you sample codes to get you started.

If you are just a php programmer then I think you've got a long way to go. Like one of the others said you need to know Java, but the thing is Java comes in three forms, Java SE, Java EE(Web applications programming), and Java ME. Java ME(Micro Edition for mobile devices) is what you want to know, but you can't know that without knowing the foundation which is in Java SE(Standard Edition for desktops). After you are done studying and writing little desktop programs you need to download the Java ME 3.0 Platform SDK(its got an emulator, text editor and all you need for mobile applications development for CLDC, CDC and MIDP devices). Its free on the Sun, excuse me oracle website, java.sun.com. After you done playing around with this SDK you should now have enough confidence to get the SDK from Nokia(this has more specific APIs for just Noka phones). Goodluck.

Don't waste your time anywhere just go for QT: It is C++ opensource and free to use plus Qt Demos and Examples to get you started.

Qt is crossplatform, it can be use for Desktop,Web,Embedded and so on. It is opensource.

First of all i want to say a big Thank you to Jehova himself.
And to all you who have found time to show me the way.

I will try out QT. NetBeans , but first of all i have to Learn Java basics.

Thanks a lot guys. I appreciate.
