Default Browser issue?

Please Login to Remove!

Okay, so basically I'm trying to have my php detect the browser and fail if it's anything other than blackberry, or redirect to another page and not complete the remaining code.

I found this:

<?php
$agent = $_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'];
echo "User agent reported as: " . $agent . "\n";

if (eregi("BlackBerry", $agent)) {
echo "BlackBerry";
}
else {
echo "Not BlackBerry";
}
?>

but the response is all muddled in the blackberrry browser....

any ideas... for some reason i don't think i'm trying to echo,..

Default

this i likely the better code...

but what do i put as the ereg"BlackBerry" ?

<?php
$br = strtolower($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT']); // what browser they use.

if(ereg("msie", $br)) {
header("location: originalhomepage.php");
} else {
header("location: alteredhomepage.php");
}
?>
