PHP4 sessions will use cookies if available, otherwise insert a session id 
into all URLs. If a session ID has to be inserted into every URL then the 
html page will be bigger and it will use more packets than if using cookies.

But I'm more interested as to why a PHP mobile site running with 
use_trans_sid=0 (i.e. not inserting session ids into URLs) seems to have 
been working for some users.
