Using Https to connect to a secure site in J2ME

807607 Newbie

I have successfully been able to get a midlet using HTTPS connections to work using the J2ME wireless toolkit and following the instructions in this paper.

http://developers.sun.com/techtopics/mobility/midp/articles/https/

I would like to get Https working on a real device now like the Moto RAZR or Samsung A900 etc. Was wondering if someone has experience with HTtps on devices and help answer my questions.
Would I have to use certificates issued by one of the following CAs like thawte,verisign etc and include it on the apache server and then the device would automatically install the certificate when a HTTPS connection is made to the server?

Can self signed certificates be used on the devices , if yes how can they be imported onto the device?

Please help.

Thanks!
