Thanks for testing it for me.

That's good.  If you could also go here: with
your Nokia.  It'll just pull the HTTP request information from your phone.
 It's the same information I posted previously about the phones that
failed.  The response is text/plain and some phones won't display that,
but if you don't get a 404 error, it'll still have stored the HTTP data.

I can go directly to the redirect URL (the :8080 one) without issue.  I
only get the failure when I go to the first URL which is then redirected
to the :8080 URL.

The phones that I tried are different types and different providers. I
have a Siemens phone from AT&T Wireless (now Cingular).  The Motorla phone
was from Verizon.

Who is your service provider?
