    Always check----
    here is number of reasons why you don't see background color on your mobile device. Let's try to list the reasons:

    *) the mobile device you are testing your page on, doesn't support background colors
    *) device doesn't support bgcolor attribute
    *) ASP.NET outputs markup without background color specified
    Check out ASP.NET output for different devices. You may find OpenWave mobile simulator very useful tool for that. Just change the user-agent header to value that fits your device header and go on.
