We developed a web site with web pages that renders xhtml. We are trying to use Nokia 5300 mobile phone to test our web pages, but we found sometimes the Nokia 5300 will automatically add the "t=xxxxx" parameter to the query string of the request (where xxxxx is a random 5 digit number such as 36771).
For example, when we try to browse "http://www.mytestserver.com/test.asp" from Nokia 5300, our web server will receive "http://www.myserver.como/test.asp?t=36771".
Some further information are as follows:
1. The t parameter is not added by our web page. We even tried to browse to a non-existent page on our server, such as abcde.asp, and use Network Monitor tool to capture the network trace on our IIS web server to check the request from Nokia 5300, the t parameter is already added in the request.
2. It is not likely that the t parameter is added by certain WAP gateways in the middle, because after the step 1 above, if I choose [Options]->[Page options]->[View address] on Nokia 5300 to view the url sent by Nokia 5300, the t is already added there.
3. This issue cannot be reproduced consistently. The t parameter will be added occasionally, but not always.
Since our own web pages also use the t parameter in the query string for other purposes, the issue above will affect the functionality of our web pages.
Has anyone familiar with Nokia mobile phone encountered similar issue before? Will the Nokia 5300 phone automatically add the "t" parameter to the query string in certain occasions for some reasons?
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks a lot!
