Question Key signing persistent object

Please Login to Remove!

I am using
Code:
import net.rim.device.api.system.PersistentStore;
import net.rim.device.api.system.PersistentObject;
And it requires signing with a key. By my current understanding, I have to pay to get a developers key to sign my application. Is this correct?

The app I wrote is just for my own use I am not going to distribute it and I really do not want to pay anything.
What are the alternatives to storing data that would not be accessing secure layers of the API?

Would I have to do some sort of data push to a web server?

Any help to clear this up would be great.
Thanks.

Can someone please at least point me to an article where this is discussed?

I thought experienced developers would be able to quickly answer this.

To run programs that use restricted APIs on a real phone you will need to sign it. For that you need keys. Once singed you can install it with the Desktop Manager.

You can use the RecordStore without singing. It isn't as convenient though.
