jquery mobile retrieve mysql results

Hi Experts,

I am trying to retrieve the results of a mysql query and insert them into a page for a mobile app I am building using dreamweaver & phonegap. I am using html5 localstorage to hold the data used for the query.
If I output the contents of localstorage they appear, so no problems there.
If I output the php page in my webbrowser then they appear so the php is fine.
So I am guessing there must be something wrong with my javascript.

Can anyone please help?
Many thanks
Jim

And also check whether you are getting the data from php file or not. Add below line above line no : 25

alert(data);

Thanks for the reply.

I am getting nothing, not even the alert.

The php is working, the link below shows the result of calling the php page
http://quote-sys.co.uk/ClaimApp/previous-claims.php?telno=07515722106&policyno=A12345&fullname=jim%20clarke

If I output the contents of localstorage they appear on the device, so that data is there.

So this javascript must be screwed somewhere
  <script>
   $(document).ready(function(){
  getResults();
});
  function getResults() {
  	var polnost = localStorage.getItem('policyNoStored');
	var telnost = localStorage.getItem('telnoStored');
	var fullnamest = localStorage.getItem('fullnameStored');
   
        $.ajax({  
            type: "POST",  
            url: "http://quote-sys.co.uk/ClaimApp/previous-claims.php",  
            data: "telno="+ telnost +"&policyno="+ polnost +"&fullname="+ fullnamest,  
            success: function(){  
					alert(data);
                	$('#results').html(data);
              }  
        }); 
  }
 </script>

Sorry my mistake Replace success with i.e pass argument data to success function

success: function(data){  
                  alert(data);
                  $('#results').html(data);
              }
