Question mobile browser view?

My girlfriend just got the epic for Sprint and when she uses the browser (default browser) all the pages and sites are in mobile view. I went to settings to change it for her but I cant find the correct setting to fix it. Can someone help?

Re: mobile browser view?

My husband got one yesterday and today while trying to go to a site that had a mobile format as well as desktop it auto directed me to the mobile. I too checked the settings where I normally would have unchecked mobile view on my hero and didn't find it either. I even tried about:config and about:debug with no luck. Anyone find a way around this yet? The site I was going to didn't have a link for desktop view so I couldn't do that.

Re: mobile browser view?

found this answer at xda... by shep211
Open the browser then type in about:debug and hit enter. It wont do anything after hitting enter but if you go into options you will now have a option to change the UAString from mobile to desktop. The option is at the bottom of the option list.


not said at xda though, this doesnt seem to be permanent. resets everytime you close the browser...

Ya. And dolphin. On android it just seems like a browser is a browser is a browser. I don't see much difference in any of them. I'm deffinitly having less fun than the first week of the touch pro 2. Or the touch pro.

Re: mobile browser view?

yes it works but like butterfliq said it doesnt stick. It goes away after you close the browser a few times.
