    Anyone figure out how to keep sites from automatically forwarding you to their mobile web version (like comedycentral.com)? The Aria can handle full web and I hate dealing with crippled sites.

    On my old WM phone there was a browser setting where I could have it be identified as a desktop and not a mobile browser. There is a setting for mobile view, but it doesn't seem to change anything.

    Go to comedycentral.com Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on desktop site.You may have to try it a few times but it does work.As far as doing it for all browsing you might search for a different browser at the market.Most sites have this option you just have to find it.

    Didn't see that link, but it still only loads the WAP site when I tap it. Tried it 6 times. Thanks for the help though. If anyone knows of a browser where this isn't a problem, let me know!

    Thanks!

    That's odd mine loads the full site.

    Assuming the Aria and Eris have the same settings ... open your browser and press menu>more>settings>un-check Mobile View.
