Hi, I just inherited this old SCH-U450 Verizon phone. You can visit the "Verizon Media Center (Get it Now)", and download games and whatnot - all of them, it seems, from different studios. I'm wondering if anyone here knows how you go about programming that device/OS.

What languages and tools are available? And how did those game studios get a Verizon deal?

You're probably looking at J2ME or BREW. The way it works is you design and write a game for one phone and then port it to other phones. This sounds like it's a bigger pain in the ass than it is on Android. I assume getting into a Verizon store is similar to getting into any other app store, just not so well advertised.

I had to change all the verb tenses above because I realized that this is still a thing. Kind of a trip.

Yeah this guy is right. It's gonna be either J2ME or BREW. Enjoy your crappy Java apps.
