I tried sending a mobile theme (*.SIS) through WAP push but i always receive an error while downloading it.
Is it because of the download size?
if yes, how can i make it smaller?
Is there a size constraint for a wap download?

Many thanks

To which model you are trying to send? I guess you can send .sis to the mobiles which have Symbian OS. (Nokia 60 series)

What if you try to download the .SIS file directly by entering the URL into the browser?

There can be limitations on download size imposed by the WAP gateway through which you are connecting ... but these are generally implementation specific and your mobile operator might have more information available.

A .SIS file is a program file ... asking how to make it smaller is like asking how to make an .EXE file smaller ... generally you need to have the program code and produce a smaller program. (Although I guess there are some EXE compressors, so maybe that is not a good comparison.)

You don't say what error you get, but if the file is less than 200kb then you should have no problems downloading it through UK operators. In fact we have downloaded Symbian apps of up to 350kb on Orange.

Have you checked that the MIME type for Symbian .sis files has been installed on the download server?

.sis ---> application/vnd.symbian.install
