mobile:link problems, I think RRS feed

    I am a newbie at mobile controls. I have built an app and it runs fine under firefox, ie and OpenWave emulator V7. When I view the app on my SprintPCS Sanyo pm-8100 cell phone, everything works fine until I go and click on a link, whether it was generated from a mobile:list or just a mobile:link. The error says "download plug-in" which I am not using anything (such as Flash) that would require a plugin (kinda, I guess, it's sending a different mime type). Any other screen with radial buttons, input boxes, buttons, etc. works great (I bypassed the screen with the links). Can anyone help? I have tried to figure this out and I do not quite understand the machine.config and the <browser..> tag. Could there be a problem there...telling the controls to generate the wrong kind of code? Thanks in advance, Mark

    I figured it out. Just for those as "new" as I am to this, I will explain what I did. I figured out the "device" profile for my PM-8200 Sanyo with NetFront v3.1 was not acurate (or existed) so when the controls were being generated, it was adding javascript which my device does not support. I was getting a message that said something about a plugin. I guess this means that the device specs are not "installed" into the original machine.config when installing .net mobile. I understand why they can't configure all devices but I thought for NetFront v3.1 specs would have been part of the config. Anyway, what I did to the correct the problem and define a new user_agent for my device, I used http://www.asp.net/mobile/profile/default.aspx to profile my device which took about 15 minutes or so. I then downloaded the device.config file that was generated by Microsoft and placed it into my web.config. That's It! Sorry if this is too elementary, maybe it will help someone.
