To run openXdata, your phone, at the least must be able to run java applications.

Most current openXdata users are using Nokia phones as they’re widely available and often inexpensive.

The current main mobile client for openXdata requires CDLC-1.1, supported by most recent phones. If you have phones that are more than a couple of years old you may need to use our CDLC-1.0 compliant app.

We’ll try and replace this with a proper compatability matrix, but for know phones that we know work:

Nokia Series 40 phones:

  • Nokia 2700c
  • Nokia 2710c aka 2710 Navigator Edition (has GPS)
  • Nokia 5130c aka 5130 Xpress Music
  • Nokia 2600c
  • Nokia 6700c (has GPS)
  • Nokia 3110c
  • Nokia 6131 NFC
  • Nokia 6220c (not great design for inputting data)
  • Nokia 1680 (price <$50)
  • Nokia 6020
  • Nokia 5230
  • All the above have been used in the field, so as far as we can tell all Nokia S40 phones work fine (see the note in Troubleshooting about setting up your GPRS connection settings).

Other phones known to work:

  • E71
  • Sony Ericsson P1i

Partially working:

  • Motorola RazR – application will install but runs v. slowly (based on one test – other feedback welcome)

Known not to work:

  • Sony Ericson – w350i
