    1. You can't change the default browser to view full web pages without jumping through hoops. You would be better off installing Dolphin HD browser, the settings are easier and they stay put.

    2. I don't understand this question.

    To #1, a number of websites are getting wise now and are including links to view the "Full Site" as sometimes the mobile sites are seriously limited in function. I know Amazon for example has a link to their full site when you scroll all the way to the bottom of the page. A number of others sites I use have the link at the very bottom of the mobile page as well. Outside of that there's not really much you can do if the website itself doesn't offer a link to view their full site.

    Dolphin HD takes you to full websites just like the incredible, so does the default browser if you tell it to do so, but it's more difficult to do and the settings don't stay if you close the browser.

    Interesting, I didn't know that. Where is the option in the default browser to view the full site?

    Type in about:debug in the address bar. It will appear as though it had no effect.
    After that go to menu - more - settings - UAString.

    Did you type in about:debug?

    If you do it once the settings appear, if you do it twice they go away again and you'll have to do it a 3rd time.
    You're better off downloading dolphin HD. You can set it to full web and it stays.
    The default browser will remove the settings every time you force close the browser or reboot.

    I don't think there is a setting for that. If it's a good link you should be able to tap it and the browser should open.

    SMS is so 1990's, I just use Google Talk

    But I've heard a lot of people like Handcent, perhaps that gives you the feature you're looking for?
