You need to setup the MIME type, look below:

Configuring MIME types

Table 1. MIME Types for WAP

Extension MIME Type Description
.wml text/vnd.wap.wml WML source
.wmls text/vnd.wap.wmlscript WMLScript source
.wbmp image/vnd.wap.wbmp Wireless Bitmap

In table 1, the mime types for serving WML content to your wireless device:
(wireless markup language) .WMLS (WML SCRIPT), and WBMP to display Wireless
Bitmap images.

Table 2. MIME Types for Pre-Compiled WAP (optional)
.wmlc application/vnd.wap.wmlc Compiled WML binary
.wmlsc application/vnd.wap.wmlscriptc Compiled WMLScript binary

In table 2, the WMLC gives your web server the ability to display WML in
binary format. This reduces the overhead and latency to the device. And you
will be able
to take advantage of content compression from the NES with this option in
your web
 First locate where the apache software is installed on your computer.
Should this
be a UNIX platform, then check /etc/httpd/conf/mime.typs or
/usr/local/httpd/conf/mime.types . If not any of these locations, contact
administrator for further assistances.

Configuring MIME types

 Edit "mime.types" file using "VI" or any of your favorite editors. This
will open
up the mime type configuration file. In the configuration file you will need
input the mime types information as followed:
 The most simplest way to configure apache with the appropriate mime types,
copy and paste the content
o Compiled WML
 application/vnd.wap.wmlc wmlc
o WML Scripting
 application/vnd.wap.wmlscriptc wmlsc
o WML Content
 text/vnd.wap.wml wml
o Text Interpretation of WML Script
 text/vnd.wap.wmlscript wmls
o Wireless Bitmap Image
 image/vnd.wap.wbmp wbmp
 Right-click the desired directory (for instance "Default Web Site") and
Properties. You'll see a tabbed Default Web Site Properties dialog box.
 Select the HTTP Headers tab, and click File Types.
 In the File Types dialog, click New Type.
 Input the Extension and MIME type from Table 1, first line.
 You don't need to worry about the period in front of the extension-whether
type it or not, IIS will set it correctly. However, be very careful in your
spelling of
the MIME type. A small typo here will give you strange errors on your WAP
phone that can be very difficult to debug.
 Repeat for each MIME type.
 When you've finished, click OK and OK again to save your changes and close
Internet Service Manager. If prompted to "Save console settings to iis.msc?"
