Lot of Questions on WML, WAP [Push]/HTTP, Cell-Carrier/Telco

- Does WML has post method like in HTML? So it's just really sending
a HTTP request.

- Or WAP [Push] only? Is WAP widely use and common-standard in the
wireless world these days?

- Whether is HTTP or WAP [Push], can I send binary? Or need encoded
with Base64?

- Does cell-carrier (or telco) accept HTTP? WAP [Push]?

- If so, which one? Bell Mobility, AT&T Rogers Wireless, or Telus

- Does any of them (carriers) accept virtual SMS or MMS #?

- Will they (carriers) forward the cell request as HTTP? Email? to a
server (i.e. pre-defined IP ... say my little linux box at home?).

- Will they (carriers) have public API (i.e. through HTTP or even
Push-Proxy-Gateway) to accept request then forward request (may
contain just text or even binary) back to cell phone?

- Do any of them (carriers) have SMSC and/or MMSC to be access

- Is there such as thing as WAP [Push] servlet? If so, do I need to
implement one or there's already an open-source library (i.e. say in
Java) I can use?

Hope some of you experts out there can help me answer these questions.
