Build mobile application only for cell phones

    Hi,

    I'm try to write a wap only for cell phones. I have two problems need
    to be solved:

    1. How to tell the mobile application to stop responding (or refuse
    responding) to all platform except cell phones?

    I know the machine.config has information about what to render for
    each specific platform, but I don't know how to alter them and can't
    find detail information regarding that matter. Also, I'm hosting my
    wap on a shared server so I have to override those settings in
    web.config. Does this mean I have to edit each platform and tell the
    wap not to render for them?



    2. I take a look at the device update 3.0 and some cell phones are not
    in the list yet. If I need to add devices myself, what should I do?

    Currently, without the device update 3.0, my wap can't render pages
    correctly for Samsung Cell Phone (for example). Since I can't alter
    the machine.config directly (on a shared server), I have to solve
    problem 1 in order to test if the new update fixes the problem with
    Samsung cell phone I'm facing.

    Any input is much appreciated.

    Hi

    Regards the first problem not sure of the best way to do
    this, but imagine you could do a choice filter on the home
    page which gives a 'refusal' message to all users except
    those that are coming in on wap.

    To add a device yourself you can take advantage of the
    newish device profiling tool available at
    http://www.asp.net/mobile/profile/default.aspx which then
    produces the settings which you then need to paste into
    your machine.config or web.config.

    Hope this helps

    Steph
