  1. if instr(server("http_user_agent"), "Nokia") then
  2.    'device is nokia, handle appropriately
  3. elseif instr(Server("http_user_agent"), "PocketPC") then
  4.    'etc
  5. end if
This is how I would detect using asp. I'm not sure what the user agent will be in those cases, but it should be different.

I think most people detect with javascript, though, but I don't know why that would be the default.

Let me know if this helps.

Oh, sorry. You said you were writing in c# and I gave you a vb answer. It should be something similar to this, though. Or ask in the .net forum.
