    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.
