According to specifications, HTTP 1.0 devices accept the redirect status code 302 and HTTP 1.1 devices accept the redirect status code 303. However, for example the Nokia 7250i claims to support HTTP 1.1, but does not recognize the redirect status code 303 and throws an error message when it receives the code.


There is a mistake in the implementation of this feature, because a device supporting HTTP 1.1 should also support the HTTP redirect code 303.

  • 'WapVersion 1.x' indicates that the device supports WAP1.x, which means that the redirect code 303 is not supported and the redirect code 302 should be used instead.
  • 'WapVersion 2.0' means that the device supports WAP2.0 and the redirect code 303 should be used.

To find out which WAP version is used, check the UAProf file of the device in question. An example of a WAP 1.x HTTP header is in the file http://nds.nokia.com/uaprof/N7250ir100.xml: <prf:WapVersion>1.2.1</prf:WapVersion>. An example of a WAP 2.0 HTTP header is in the file http://nds1.nds.nokia.com/uaprof/N6230r400.xml: <prf:WapVersion>2.0</prf:WapVersion>.
