Sure. If they convert it at the gateway, it is no longer 3byte.
But the basic point - that 10k of sjis or eucjp content is more
content than 10k of UTF-8, remains.
So people who are chunking data into bite sized gobs should be aware
they can send - what - 15k of pure JP text in UTF-8 and it will fit
in a 10k sjis phone cache (ignoring markup and so on).
In addition, unless the gateway handles conversion on a phone by
phone basis, gateway conversion reduces the incentive for operators
to include browsers that are UTF-8 aware, as ALL content will be
delivered to the handset as sjis, regardless of the phone's
