    sending vcal files to Nokia N90


    I am having a problem getting Nokia phones, particularly my N90 to accept vcal files as WAP downloads.

    I have sent a mms message with a vcalendar attachment like so;
    DESCRIPTION:This is a test event

    And the phone recieves the message, and displays a message that there are objects attached. And I can view the vcal attachment, and open and add to the calendar. The vcal file was sent with an attachment mimetype of "text/x-vCalendar"

    However if I try to do the same thing but via WAP link, the phone rejects the file as "Object type not supported". For this I have apache set to serve the mimetype as "text/x-vCalendar"

    I checked the user agent profile for the Nokia N90 phone at http://nds1.nds.nokia.com/uaprof/NN90-1r100.xml;

    <rdf:Description rdf:ID="SoftwarePlatform">
    <rdf:type rdf:resource="http://www.openmobilealliance.org/tech/profiles/UAPROF/ccppschema-20021212#SoftwarePlatform"/>
    ...snip ...
    ... and ....

    and for the secion for MMS messages;

    So I can see that the MMS should support vCalendar 1.0, which I understand text/x-vCalendar to be the mime-type for.

    How can I determine what mime-types the phone accepts as downloadable types?

    Also, what is the mimetype "text/vCalendar", I've not seen an application that supports that yet

    Thanks in advance for any help you can provide,

    The description for this attribute is as follows;
    - <rdf:Description rdf:ID="CcppAccept">
    <rdf:type rdf:resource="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#Property" />
    <rdf:type rdf:resource="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#Bag" />
    <rdfs:domain rdf:resource="#SoftwarePlatform" />
    <rdfs:comment>Description: List of content types the device supports. Property value is a list of MIME types, where each item in the list is a content type descriptor as specified by RFC 2045. Type: Literal (bag) Resolution: Append Examples: "text/html", "text/plain", "text/html", "image/gif"</rdfs:comment>

    Shouldn't this mean that the N90 can handle these types;
