Re: Unsupported Content Type

It means that the file or website that you are trying to view is not compatible with your phones browser.

It depends on your phone on what you can and can't download or view.

Re: Unsupported Content Type

And the web site has also to send the correct MIME content type header for different file types that the phone supports. If the web server is incorrectly configured, the phone will not recognize the file type and will not know what to do with it.
