200 701 is not an error code.
The first 3 digits are the HTTP return code and the
second 3 digits are the number of bytes that were sent.

200 701 means all went well ( HTTP 200 code means OK )
and 701 bytes were sent as a response.

The reason you are only seeing 411 bytes on the second
request could be that WAP phones will send much more
header information on a 'first' response then subsequent
requests if a session ID has been established with the

It looks like the extra data following the question mark
( msisdn=9745000008  ) is some sort of 'device id' just
like Palm Pilots use when talking to their own Palm
gateways and this acts sort of like a 'Cookie' to help
establish a session with a WAP gateway since 
the actual IP addresses for all wireless devices routed 
through any particular mobile tower or mobile network
is always the same for all users. ( All Palm Pilot PQA
requests use the same exact IP address for all 4 million
Palm Pilots. Only the 'device id' changes ).
