Thx Katja,

I am using cwmobileredirect! Problem is that I can't get it to work with my second provider.
And secondly I just found out that when I type in the domain.com address, without the www, the user of a desktop is also guided to the mobile site. I don't want that of course.
The level 3 :-) answers I read did not work out for me. I do not have enough knowledge for that. 
Can you explain me low level how to get it running?

Best regards,

Therefore I tried an html page with (<meta http-equiv="REFRESH" content="0;url=http://www.mydomainname.com/index.php?id=74/"></HEAD>). But what happens is, that when a mobile device is detected, it is sent to this index page and this index page sends him back to TYPO3. So I end up in an endless loop.
