Looking for MIDP 2.0 enabled CDMA Phones

Hi all,

Does anyone know where I can find CDMA phones that support MIDP 2.0 and their SDK?

Nokia 6255i is MIDP 2.0! They even have a PS1 type snowboarding game that comes with the phone that looks like a PS1 port!

Problem is is that you can't install non-Sprint MIDP 2.0 applications onto a Sprint phone. Wait, scratch that, you can certainly install, but many of the MIDP 2.0 specific API calls will cause your application to suddenly quit because that application does not have a VeriSign Java Level 3 Certificate that costs $400 to developers. I believe non-Sprint apps can't access the Java 3D, Bluetooth (not even sure if Sprint phones themselves support it), PIM (aka contacts), multimedia (playing mp3 and aac streams off of the web) and File-access APIs (again, not sure if its supported) without the certificate.
