Thanks. Testing from the command line works perfectly: the URL above produces a 302 redirect
to http://www.stoddardsoftware.com:8080/mobilemovies/m/nate which returns the WML file. So
no probs with the apache config.

Testing with an online WAP browser (http://www.wapsilon.com/) works perfectly - the WML file
is displayed and is functional.

Testing with my Nokia 6230 works perfectly - the WML file is displayed and is functional.

So I would conclude that there is nothing wrong with the setup at your end. I think you need
to look at the setup at the phone's service provider. To recap how WAP works, the phone makes
a proprietary (eg, GPRS) connection to a WAP server located in the phone company's premises,
and submits the URL. It is the WAP server that makes the HTTP request to your server. It's
not really the phone that receives the redirect, it's the WAP server - if it is unable to
resolve the redirected hostname or (more likely) if it cannot issue a request to port 8080
(maybe a FW rule), then the request will fail.

Do the phone's you've tested with all have the same service provider? Can you find and try
a different phone?

Rgds,
Owen Boyle
