session and PHPSESSID with mobile browser

P: n/a
Hi !
I would like to propagate data between php pages, in two cases :
the pages are read by :
1- Internet Explorer
It's ok, data are writen in one page, and read from another. I don't use
PHPSESSID

2- from a mobile browser ( mobile i-Mode phone Nec22)
After several tests, I understod it's impossible, because the session system
tries to write a cookie on the browser...

So, I try passing PHPSESSID through the link to the next page. OK, the
PHPSESSID can be read from the reached page. But, how do I read the other
data written in the session variables ? What must be the order of the
functions to retrieve my data ?

Thanks for your ansvers, I am quite newbie with PHP.

You have to set the session id on the next page before you call your
session.

session_id($_GET['PHPSESSID']);
session_start();
//you should now be able to access your session variables
echo $_SESSION['mysessionvar'];

Check your php.ini, the URL parameter is SID with my installation. If
you transport that and call session_start() on each page, everything
is in $_SESSION
