Does anyone know how to send a "browser message" that Motorola phones are able to receive? I'd like to be able to send a message that goes to a page on my server, which is how they seem to deliver games. I downloaded the Messaging Suite but it only allowed text, pictures and audio - no URL link.

Any ideas?

well, dang - it seems like either no one knows or no one cares to speak up. well, after a lotta chasing around from documents i can't understand to documents i don't want to understand, i finally found that it's just a wap push (which i'll have to do some reading up on now...)

answer below, thanks to

WAP Push messages are specially formatted SMS messages that display an alert message to the user, and gives the user the option of connecting directly to a particular URL via the mobile phone�s WAP browser.

The Bango service sends a WAP push message in response to a TXT Trigger request from a user. The format of the URL to access the content is the telephone number followed by e.g.

Please be advised that there are variations on the name of a WAP push depending on the make of phone that you are using.

Here are the most common ones:

Nokia - "Service Message"

Sharp - "WAP Alert"

Samsung - "Push Message"

Motorola - "Browser Message"

Sony Ericsson - "[name of site/page]WAP"

Sagem - "WAP Push"

Panasonic - "WAP Message"
I agree. Here's the link:
