Problem with showing the thank you message

I included this code:

<?php
    header("Location: contact.php?status=thanks");
exit;
?>

on local server it sends the status=thanks to browser and i see the thank you message, but in real server it does not send it to the browser. In other words I don't see the thank you message:

<?php if(isset($_GET["status"]) AND $_GET["status"] == "thanks"){?>
<h4>Thanks for sending the message. I will contact you soon!</h4>

The problem will be a difference between your local and real server. Do you know what the two are running PHP wise? Try putting var_dump($_GET); at the top of your file (after <?php) and see what it outputs.
