Install BluCop on your mobile
Once you managed to transfer BluCop.jar to your mobile you need to open it to get it started or installed. If you do not know the location of the transferred BluCop.jar file then the File Manager or Gallery can be a good starting point for file seeking. Some mobiles does install the application when you open the BluCop.jar file, others simply start it without any installation process. During installation you may get a warning about that the origin of the installed software is not reliable. Just ignore this notification and let your device continue the installation process. The reason of this message is the missing digital signature of the application. We were thinking about to get our applications signed by JavaVerified but the process and its costs are not proportional with the benefit, additionally such signatures cause unexpected restrictions in some cases.
Unfortunately there are some phones, which does not enable to start or install applications received over Bluetooth or via other file transfer methods. In such case you will need a data cable and a phone specific utility (e.g. Nokia PC Suite for some older Nokia phones) to accomplish the installation process.

We appreciate any feedback on successful or unsuccessful installations on different phone types.
