Hi and thanks for using JustAnswer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do whatever I can to help answer your questions.
Android does not run Jar or Tar files, can you tell me what you are trying to do so I can give you more detailed assistance.
Now, I have 5 files : Blooover2.jar./ Blooover2b.jar./ BTExplorer.jar./ BTScanner-2.0.tar.tar./ Bluesniff-0.1.tar.tar...etc. Those files were downloaded from my computer, (Already compressed). But I can't open it in my cell. "Samsung galaxy "SGH-499Y", It said that 'NO APPLICATION CAN PERFORM THIS ACTION'.
Please help me open those files. Thank you

Are you trying to run Cell Control?
Ok, give me a second. I am going to type out a long answer for you to give you all the information and try to make it as thorough as possible so you understand why I tell you what I do.
You can't just convert a jar or tar file to an apk(an apk is an installation file for Android), and Android does NOT run or install jar or tar files. It has to be compiled for Android. Android's java library doesn't have all the swing stuff that's in normal java, so the app would have to be completely re-written to work on android and it has not been.
There's a reason they(Cell Control / Bloover / WatchMe / etc.) dont just convert the files themselves and sell the apk file. The reason they dont just convert it and sell it themselves is they know it doesn't work after conversion and that the entire app/software needs to be rewritten. Think about it, if it could be converted, they would do it and just sell you the APK file. They simply want you to buy the program, once they sell it to you they dont care if it works or not.
There is a company called "UpOnTek" (upontek.com) that if you send them the jar/java files they will send you back an APK file for you Android device. Thats your best option to get Cell Control as an apk. But, it's still not guaranteed to work properly (I dont even recommend it, but I feel I should give you all options so I can say my answer was thorough).
Android is designed to thwart spyware, and to not allow it which is why you wont find any of the spyware companies selling you Android files directly.

Yes, you can use it on OLDER model BB's but nothing that has been updated in the last two years or so. The issue, is that these companies had all this spyware that worked great on all the old Java based phones(think all the old Nokias, etc) and now that we have secure OS's like Android, iOS, and BB, their only business is being taken away so they resort to selling as many of their products as they can and hoping only half of the people who buy it get a refund.
There are many apps you can put together on an Android to do a lot of the same things... I cant be specific for legal reasons, but check out some of the SMS backup apps that send automatic backups of every text to a Gmail account.. and checkout latitude on Google Maps, etc...

I 'm not really understand what you means as the above. If I do need that product - "Spyware", what should I do ? buy another suitable cell phone or keep trying to run my Samsung phone ? which is the possible way as the Technical effort ?
Well, lets put it this way, you wont be able to buy any Spyware that runs on any new Android, iOS, or BB phone. So your only choice if you want to run spyware is to purchase and use and older Java based Nokia phone.
Otherwise, you can use the apps I mentioned and get creative to achieve the same results.
That model runs on Symbian OS v9.4, so I am pretty sure it will as thats a Java based OS. However, with that being said I am not an expert on those older models. I am an Android Developer, and work with new OS's, so I wouldn't be much help installing it on that phone!
It means it has the best chance of it yes, the older the phone and the more java based the OS is, the better the chance of it running the program.
OK, I got your answer, I will try to work on this Nokia phone, It's late nigth tonight, I will try tomorrow. Hoping getting your answer next time again. Thank you very much indeed. Have a Good Night Eric.
