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.

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 bango.net ----
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 bango.net e.g. http://447711223344.bango.net
Please be advised that there are variations on the name of a WAP push depending on the make of phone that you are using.
