I am sure you are thinking of an other mobile phone. Nokia 63xx does not
support video at all, the 6310 does not even support J2ME.

I have never seen J2ME implementations with AWT support. J2ME has its
own display classes (lcdui). For loading MIDlets over the air you only
need internet access, something that is available by nearly all
providers I know since they support WAP for all customers. If you can't
install MIDlets over the air you won't need a Jabber client on the
phone, but you would still be able to install it with a serial cable, an
IR link or over bluetooth.
