    Most forum software nowadays can be accessed both from the computer and mobile devices.
    I think it's best for you to use a free forum software like MyBB and PhpBB, to test out how it will work out.

    Here are a few links to help you:
    http://www.phpbb.com
    http://www.mybb.com
    http://punbb.informer.com/
    http://www.simplemachines.org/

    lovebirds143, like others have suggested you could start out by trying the PHPBB forum script. If you have cPanel hosting with Fantastico you can even install it to your site from right there through the control panel, without having to upload anything to your server.

    If you go with PHPBB you can use Touch BB from the Apple App store to make viewing of your forum convenient for iPhone users.

    Good luck with your forum and please do let us know if we can help you with anything else.

    But I think WAP nowadays are overpowered by 3G connections so there will be less people using WAP.

    What functionality do you need that is not provided by TouchBB?

    Another product I just heard about is http://www.tapatalk.com I haven't used them myself, but perhaps it can help you.
