Please consider that having an application signed by symbiansigned.com 
it's a matter of few steps to be done and no serious commercial 
application are shipped unsigned and that the default on all E-series 
phones is "Signed only".

This means that a user will not be able to install the application 
unless they disable the platform security settings.

No, that's unfortunately a rule of Symbian and Nokia that with their 76% 
of smartphone marketshare can do more or less whatever they want.

However for development, acquiring a DevCert with MultimediaDD require 
few clicks and it's almost immediate.
