Bing / Yahoo Incorrectly Assigning Inbound Links. Please Help.
It's been some time since I last posted on here, but I'm having a problem and wanted to turn to the best. Our company website has over 17,000+ links pointing to the main index.php page. Our site shows up great on Google for nearly all of our main terms, but the page is nowhere to be found on Bing or Yahoo. The page is indexed, but according to Bing's webmaster tools, the index.php page has 0 links and they are all pointing to our mobile.php page.
We have removed the mobile.php page around 2 months ago as it appears the redirect from index.php to mobile.php caused Bing and Yahoo to believe it was a 301 redirect or something along those lines. Additionally, we setup a 301 redirect from the mobile.php page back to the index.php page over a month ago, along with submitting a correct sitemap to webmaster tools. However, Bing is still showing the mobile.php page with all of our inbound links versus the correct index.php page.
What can we do to get our inbound links assigned correctly to our main index.php page?
Thanks in advance for any help in this issue. We have tried contacting Bing's customer support with minimal luck.

What I'm missing here: have you checked every possibility of the index page ACTUALLY redirecting to the mobile page?
Because in that case, just redirecting the mobile page back is NOT going to work.
Also, after doing all those changes, what have you done SEO-wise to get the changes noticed, besides 'submitting to Webmaster Tools'?

The index.php page used to redirect users running specific resolutions over to mobile.php. However, we have since removed the redirect script on index.php and taken mobile.php offline.
We have setup a few new inbound links to the index.php page over the past month +.
Thanks for your help.
