Problems with SOTAWatch on my handy (mobile phone)

Hi again.
I am no handy-freak, but managed to downlowd the SOTAWatch on my handy (mobile phone) today, and can read the site properly.
However, I do not succeed to log in with my callsign and password (which I have double checked that they are correct ;-). I get the message on the website that my loggin did not succeed, again and again.
For possible future activations I would like to be able to spot myself, and I think I can only do that when logged in - so what shall I do?
Please answer here or take contact with me: michael.theiss@lyse.net

Hi Mike,
I have the same problem and have been unable to resolve it. I can view the SOTA spots and alerts on my 3G mobile phone, but my log in is rejected by the site. Spotlight and Andy’s sms system work fine.

Works for me. I logged out of SOTAWatch and logged back in again on my phone. (Nokia 6120 classic using 3.5G HSPDA connection)

I have had similar problems with sites that require a login & found it was due to a problem with the built in broser in my phone. I installed the mobile version of Opera instead, & everything then worked as it should. I have no problmes logging into the other site, or to Sotawatch. The phone is a Sony Ericsson P910i using GPRS.
