If you can get onto PBS then you just look up the ISBN and see if it's WL.

Stephen, I do the same thing a lot.  It depends on how much internet you have on your phone.  On my Blackberry,  I can't do anything with Java.  I let the main PBS page load on my phone, then scroll down to the bottom and you should have a link for Mobile/PDA.  If you click on that, it will take you to an abbreviated screen with a place to enter the ISBN and a drop down menu box for Posted Books, Unposted Books or WL Books.  That seems to work best and quickest for me.
