Hello

I don't know if this is the right forum for this, but I figured my problem will get some attention here and I would probably win the book.

I am working on a project that involves selling ringtones and games to peoples phones. These are to be sent via WAP(wireless application protocol).
Now, the problem is that the settings of the wap enabled phones of most people in my country have not been configured for downloading stuff. How this is usually done is that whosoever wants to configure his/her wap settings has to dial a number and then the network operators send him a message via sms which contains the list of things the user has to do to configure his/her phone manually. Now this process is usually stressful and time consuming for most users and it discourages most people from configuring their wap settings, thereby preventing them from enjoying the benefits of wap.
What I want to do is to get the user's phone number and phone model and then send a wireless markup language(WML) code to his phone via SMS(short messaging service) that prompts him to click an OK button which triggers the code I have sent to automatically configure his wap settings, based on the model of his phone.

I will like to know if this is possible and if it is, what kind of code can do that?

Plus this is a duplicate post of the same in the J2ME forum, where it best belongs, so I am going to close this thread.
