Redirecting URLs with query String

Hi,

We have taken over a domain..and we have many URLs hard coded in some mobile devices. We want to keep these URLs working...but we just don't have any luck.  I'm not sure if it is how everything is coded...but when I try with my mobile device with any URL below I just get sent to the last URL in the list.

I'm sure something is wrong with my RedirectMatch... Any ideas?
ServerName mobileportal.mts.ca
    ServerAlias www.mobileportal.mts.ca
 
    RedirectMatch (.*)/getnew\.jsp\?request=default$ http://homepage
    RedirectMatch (.*)/getnew\.jsp\?request=applications$ http://homepage
    RedirectMatch (.*)/getnew\.jsp\?request=facebook $ http://m.facebook.com
    RedirectMatch (.*)/getnew\.jsp\?request=games$ http://homepage

# for your facebook example:

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/*facebook
RewriteRule ^/*facebook(.*) http://m.facebook.com/$1 [QSA,L]

which is the "last URL in the list"?

According your question's title, use the QSA flag in the RewriteRule

When visiting any page, I always end up at http://www.mts.ca/mobileportal.  When typing www.mobileportal.mts.ca/facebook I would like to get redirected to http://m.facebook.com  but it isn't happening.

Both servers are live at the moment...and can be tried from any browser.

Thanks, we had to do slight tweaks...but this appears to work for the basic one "/facebook".

We will be trying the same concept for the complicated ones (/getnew.jsp?request=default) and I will post a status as soon as we are done

We ended up with using the snippet below when we were redirecting based on query string
    RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} &?request=default [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*) http://homepage/? [L,R]

And the one below for our more basic ones.
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} /facebook [NC]
    RewriteRule ^(.*) http://m.facebook.com [L,R]
