Well the first requirement is the spec for each phone type to know the
format of files it requires and what custom headers it needs sent to
accept it as a file download.  There really isn't any standard for how
this is done.

Everything can be done in PHP (other than generating the file in the
correct format) for sending the file to a phone if it connects to a URL
with it's browser, at least on the many phone types I dealt with at my
previous job.

Something like hawhaw lib for php might be handy too for generating easy
WAP pages using php scripts.
