Seems to be the week for curly ??

Have a user accessing OMA via WAP browser on Nokia 6265.

His username has an ü in it.

i can enter this character from the Nokia keyboard but it doesn't like it and fails login.

Workaround for OWA is :

To work around this problem, users who have one or more characters with an umlaut in their user names or passwords must change the encoding type setting from Unicode (UTF-8) to Western European (Windows) when they access the OWA logon page. To do this, advise them to follow these steps:

1. Use your Web browser to connect to the OWA logon page.

2. Right-click the OWA logon Web page, point to Encoding, and then click Western European (Windows).

Any ideas on how to do this with OMA / WAP browser ??

I would think that the phone would need to be in another language - i.e. german in order to change the character set.

Just a guess mind you :-)

When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.
