Re: how to get Opera and IE to think i'm on a desktop pc

I don't know any registry edits, but i installed Opera 9.5 version 2392 for vga devises that i got at http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...ighlight=opera and once i installed it over the standard version, of course it was unsuccessful, but somehow, it changed something in the registry that allows me to have desktop like internet.

Re: how to get Opera and IE to think i'm on a desktop pc

In the address bar, type in

about:config
scroll down on the page to item User Agent and click on it.
It says Spoof user agent ID

1 is Opera Mobile 9.5
2 is Firefox
3 is desktop IE 6

and also need to change the custom user agent from
Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows CE; IEMobile 7.11) Sprint MP6950SP

to Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT)

And that worked for me


is there a way to NOT default to wap pages?

After you did the settings changes did you hit save? You have to scroll all the way to the bottom and save it. Mysapce for me works as you described, bofa was also a no luck, but pocketnow works fine on my phone. I'm using build 2392.

Also, to clarify what VW said...

You must go to "User Prefs", click it, then scroll down to "Custom User Agent" and change it to: "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT)"

That step wasn't too clear.
