WML deck size limitation...

I am a beginner in WML programming world and currently
I am porting one PC-based website for mobile phones.

The existing website contains ASP pages with HTML
which I have transformed into WML. I have tested the
website using Nokia WAP toolkit 2.0 emulator and it
works fine. However, when I test the same website
using the actual Nokia 7110 cellphone, it does not
work properly all throughout. While browsing the site,
the initial 3 decks are shown properly but when I
attempt to go to the next deck by clicking next
button, it says "connection time out" after a while.

I found that the size of the .wmlc file for this deck
is ~2k. Is this the only problem ? The size limitation
sounds to be a very common problem. One apparent
solution is to redesign the website and sub-divide one
deck into multiple decks to limit the size of .wmlc
file below 1400 bytes. However, it is not readily
acceptable in my case. Any other solution ?

Is there any other aspect of the problem I am
overlooking ?

Looking forward to your expert suggestions.

Thanks with regards,
