Changing Browser during navigation

Hi there,


Is it possible to change the browser (or the access point used) during navigation, via javascript or a special link or something like that?

I need to make sure the user uses the WAP browser (or WAP APN), so I can get some information from the carrier wapgateway's headers.


Right now, when I detect that the user is using the internet browser, I just show a message asking him to change to the WAP browser to proceed, but that's annoying.


Is there any way to do it?


Thanks in advance.
