I believe most mobile phones read WML.
Refer to Can you give me more information on WML and WAP? for a start.

Most newer phones are capable of reading both WML and XHTML pages. Often the determining factor is what kind of bridging service is in place for cellphones in a particular area. There might be a WAP bridge in place , or maybe GSM is available.

PHP can be used to make dynamic WML pages with just a few tweeks to either the httpd.conf file on an Apache server or by setting handlers in your htaccess files (this may be your only choice if you are not a systems admin for the webserver).

If GSM is available in your area cellphones can get XHTML pages too. This means that you can also serve up Flash pages!

here are a couple of good links for you: (O'Reilly is always my first stop....)
