Default How do I get my htc vivid to load web pages fully?

My boyfriend and I got matching htc vivid phones for christmas. When I put in the yahoo web page on my phone I get the full page as it would look like on a computer. When he does it, he gets a list. He wants the full web page. How do I get his phone to do this?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Welcome to AF!

If you head to the browser settings, there should be an option to change the user agent? Can you change that to desktop? There could also be an option for Mobile view, if that's ticked, does unticking sort?

Sorry, you need to be more clear. Every time I open the browser it goes to google. The settings don't show that. Thanks

Open the browser and press the menu button, then select settings, is there an option called User Agent, or Mobile view?

Does that make sense?

Open Home Page Then Press

Menu/More/Then Settings/Un-check Mobile view/set your home page at the top to a full site like
Code:
http://www.yahoo.com/
Some pages will still be in mobile view and when this happens scroll to the bottom of the page and look for desktop view.Good Luck!
