Nokia Cell Phones ignore the meta refresh....

For all you mobile wap developers...

The nokia phones like to ignore the meta-refresh tag.

 http-equiv="refresh" content="5" />

If you need do a long operation for a website like loading email or pulling up data for a report, this tag will be unreliable.

You will need to implement some sort of polling mechanism, where the user clicks on the link manually every 5 seconds to gather the information.
