    If you want to disable mobile sites in the native browser

    Did some searching around and no one on this forum has posted how to do it.

    -Open browser
    -Type "about:debug" in the address bar - press "go" Nothing will happen, this will only enable more options in the menu
    -go to menu -> more -> settings
    -scroll down to "UAString"
    -Select "desktop"

    your good to go

    nothing will happen when you enter it in, it only enables the debug settings in the menu.

    Are these debug options not coming up in the browser menu?

    Very useful tip; thanks a million. Now... what if I want to disable this and revert back? Is it as simple as "re"selecting the Android UAString?

    You know, the xScope browser has this feature built-in, plus you can specify the iPhone as your browser identifier if you like. It's handy for WiFI hotspots that are free to iPhone users and not the rest of the world.

    ^^^ nsfw for that link LOL

    Thanks for this tip. I liked how xScope and some other browsers would let you change the User Agent but I honestly don't like the other browsers as much as the stock one. This makes it perfect!

    +1 Just a few days ago I couldn't order a pizza on papajohn's mobile site and couldn't get to the real site. Had to call them, darn it! Took me 10 minutes to realize my droid makes calls too!

    You'd get the iPhone version of sites (for those that have one).
