More details
I'm really annoyed about having to buy a j2me code signing certificate to sign java apps to run on my phone. The JSR have decided that you should not be able to install your own java root certificates on your own phone, but you should be forced into buying one from verisign or thawte each year, even if you are a developer. Thanks guys.

So, what I'm proposing is a group of folks get together and buy a certificate and share it. It's possibly against the term and conditions of the certificate, but If I want to develop apps to work on my own phone as a hobby, I shouldn't be forced to sign them each year to make them work properly. I'm sure one organisation can use a single certificate, and not use one per developer, so lets create our own organisation to do this.

This pledge is now closed, as its deadline has passed.
