how do you make it not go to mobile web sites?
My EVO had an option to always go to standard web sites and not go to mobile sites. How do I get my EVO LTE do the same? The mobile web sites are many times stripped down and sometimes if I click on a link it won't load it because it keeps going to the mobile site where the link doesn't work. I tried selecting the "view desktop site" option in the setting when on a site but that seems to only work for the site I'm on but not all sites moving forward unless I select it for that site. Please help!

I have Google as homepage scroll down and click classic on view Google as then, menu, check off desktop view
Much easier with Google Chrome just check off desktop and it converts every mobile site I had bookmarked to desktop
sent from a EVO that survived a Apple attack... thug life

Re: how do you make it not go to mobile web sites?
For the default browser, I've found that the "View Desktop Site" option does stick, but does not work properly on certain sites (such as Facebook). For most sites, if I decide to open a new page, or a link to a new tab, it usually opens the full desktop version, but for instance on Facebook, if I try to open a photo, it opens the mobile site. If I edit the URL, though, it usually works in getting me the desktop site.
Chrome, on the other hand, has a "Request desktop site" option, which only seems to work within the current tab--The default first tab is usually the bookmark, and when I open a new page in this tab, it stays using the desktop site. But as soon as I open a link to a new tab, or create a new tab manually, the "Request desktop site" option for the new tab is no longer checked.
On Firefox, I've installed an app called "Phony," which allows you to set the User Agent String to a desktop version, and this setting seems to stick. So this may be a better option for you.
