    A few years back on my Dell Axim Microsoft PocketPC, I was able to tell my browser to not show I am a mobile device when surfing web sites.

    Example, when I go to Ebay.com the web browser re-directs me to m.Ebay.com which is the mobile version of the web site.

    Im using the standard browser, when I go into Settings > Advanced Settings -- Website Settings- View advanced settings for individual websites is greyed out

    some browsers have a "desktop" option to load pages as desktop, but it still does not work with all sites, at least for me.

    Try using xscope as your browser. It has settings that ask if you want to represent a mobile phone, an iPad, a desktop, etc.

    Here ya go:

    Change the User Agent on an Android Phone

    Most websites forward you to the mobile site based on the User Agent String sent by your browser. Those directions tell you how to switch it to emulate a desktop or an iPhone and setting it to Desktop will keep 95% of the sites from sending you to the mobile site.
