Some of your users have mobile devices that aren't on the list of officially supported OMA devices, but you want to use them anyway.

OMA supports a
broad range of mobile devices, but they can't support every potential device. In general, phones or handhelds that implement the Openwave browser, Microsoft's Pocket Internet Explorer, or the Ericsson, Nokia, or Symbian browsers are supported. The canonical list of supported devices is located at http://www.asp.net/mobile/testeddevices.aspx?tabindex=6. Microsoft periodically releases update packages called device updates (DUs) that add support for additional devices; you can get the latest DU from the supported device page.
If you want to try using a device that you think should be compatible, you can toggle the Enable unsupported devices flag. When the setting is off, OMA will
to talk to any device not supported by the DU version on that server. When you
it on, you can connect to OMA with any device you like, and if it's not supported, OMA will ask you to click OK on a confirmation page that reminds you that your device isn't supported.
