- Code Signing is NOT REQUIRED for full device use on the simulator
- Code Signing is REQUIRED for full physical device use: "Research In Motion® (RIM) must track the use of sensitive APIs noted as signed when used by applications for security and export control reasons. If you use these controlled classes or methods in your applications, your application must be signed with a key or a signature provided by RIM before you can load the application .cod files onto the BlackBerry® smartphone"
