Perhaps you confused standard HTTP redirection (status codes 301 and 302
with a Location field) with the non-standard Refresh field which is
commonly abused for redirection. The former is probably handled by the
gateway, since it takes care of most details of HTTP. The latter is
normally added using a <META> tag, which the gateway probably doesn't
support (since it doesn't attempt to parse content). It could be
implemented by the handset, but as far as I am aware, *no* handsets do
support it. As you may be aware, some i-mode sites rely on this to
direct desktop web browsers to different pages.
