    My Samsung Epic, using Dolphin browser, usually defaults to the mobile version of a website. So if I type in www.abc.com, it will search out m.abc.com. I don't know if it's Android, or Dophin, or just something in the website itself, but it does that. And normally it's right. Sometimes, however, the mobile site is soo dummied down and so useless I want to get to the main site. So how do I do that? It keeps going to the mobile site.

    This is normal. You are using a mobile phone, and typically, the sites are programed to recognize this.

    You could try using different browsers. I use a default browser, and if I enter the address twice, I will get the true version. But then again, I use modified code.

    You can also set your user agent to "Desktop"

    You can do this with Menu -> More -> Settings -> Dolphin Settings -> User Agent

    I have found a way around the mobile website default and I think it applies to all cell phone types.

    The phone can only default to "root" urls because the sub-urls of each website have no recognizeable mobile version.

    I simply looked up the exact sub-url for the website I was trying to reach: (http://espn.go.com/espnradio/shows/etc...) and it took me straight to the desktop version. Initially, I was trying to get to the root website (ESPNRadio.com - ESPN) and it didn't work.

    If you don't know one of the sub-urls of your website, just google it. Unfortunately, I still couldn't find a way to go to the root website. When I clicked the "ESPN Radio Home" link from my sub-url page, I got the mobile version once again.

    Hope this helps!

    Like tropper said. I know the stock browser has a setting for mobile view, on or off. I would think most good browsers would. But it could be that some websites will only load the mobile view no matter what.

    In Dolphin browser, you have 2 choices:

    1- menu key of android...more...'mobile view (gwt). This toggles 2 versions of the site.

    2 - if you use it often, can assign mobile toggle as a gesture.

    For example, click the lower left corner of screen to pull up gesture bar, select 'draw gesture'...'new gesture'....'mobile view (gwt)'...then draw a meaningful gesture (maybe the letter M).

    This applies to almost any site. I think maybe this mobile version is created by google??. If there is a special m...site, then maybe more than one mobile version available for given site? Not sure.
