Docomo still renders only Shift_JIS. AU is ok for UTF-8 on all models;
it appears that they're doing conversion at the gateway, at least for
the older models. I'm not quite as sure about all Softbank models, but
you'd have to get pretty darn old on those before you'd have a chance of
UTF-8 not working.
BTW, this stuff was in the archives just recently. But I really need to
get the keitai-dev wiki back on-line....
