    Please help, I am starting to get pissed off at this phone...

    I know there is a setting on the browser to turn off the mobile versions of internet web pages, but unchecking that box still doesn't do it. I still get mobile versions of web pages. I thought the Dinc/droids were similar to the iPhones in this regard about not being "a version of the internet" but the ACTUAL internet. Someone correct me where I'm wrong. I can't get the mobile version turned off no matter what I do. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks forum folks!

    The only way I know of is open the browser, type about:debug and go to settings and uncheck Mobile View and go down to UAString and select Desktop.

    What websites are you visiting? My only other option would be to install a new browser like Dolphin or google it. :(

    www.nytimes.com is always my "test" website to see if it goes to a mobile version. No matter how I navigate there, it still changes in the address bar to www.mobile.nytimes.....etc. I'll look at trying to download a new browser like dolphin. Any other good, stable browers you'd recommend?

    Thanks

    I just tried it, got the full home page. I would recommend Dolphin and Skyfire :) If it's really an issue, you could do a factory reset. Maybe its just en error?
