That won't help Antonio.  Nokia 5300 is *not* an S60/Symbian mobile

As for you Antonio, I don't think Python will run on that device.  It's
an S40 device, which is a propriety platform from Nokia.  Nokia
published documentation on how to program it only through "Java ME" and
nothing else!

You either need to contact Nokia directly to obtain the closed API (and
then port Python to it), or use Java ME to interact with your device.

Does anyone know if Jython will help in this situation? (or am I way
off, and Jython is not used like that?!)

Hope that help.
