Proxy settings for gprs access points in nokia Symbian 40 series to allow applications to connect to internet

This post may benefit the s40 users because by following the steps given below the user can use the java programs which require access to the internet. The s40 nokia phones don’t allow user to configure proxy settings, moreover in the recent versions of the series 40 phones nokia even removed the option of specifying proxy server for the access points.
So in order to get the java applications running your nokia phone must have xml and provisioning documents which you can download from the specified link given below
Download NokiaJavaProxy
The file you will get from here is zipped and when you unzip it, you will see two files namely NokiaJAVAProxy.wml and NokiaJAVAProxy.prov
How to get started:
1. Using the send file option in the pc suit send the NokiaJAVAProxy.prov file into your phone and please note that don’t copy paste the file as it will not work this way. Another way to do this is send this file from another phone to your phone via Bluetooth so that it accepts the incoming file as incoming message.
2. As soon as you open the received file, the phone will recognize the format and prompt you to save the settings.
3. To wind up the process you need to access the default configurations option under the configurations menu and change the default to the name of the file you just transferred.
With all this done successfully I hope the java applications like Google maps etc will run smoothly and can access internet through these access points.
