Is carrier digital signature compulsary for signing MIDlets?

My MIDlet uses JSR-75 PIM & FC heavily. I don't want user to be prompted everytime.

It doesn't use any BlackBerry phone dependent API.

I am targetting all BlackBerry phones with OS version at least 4.2

Do I need to sign my MIDlet with carrier digital signature or only RIM sigining keys will do?


Thanks in advance

Unless it is required by a carrier (i.e. for their online store) RIM signing keys should be sufficient. Carrier signing keys will not grant any additional functionality beyond what RIM signing keys will do.
