    Change the user agent with UAFaker or something. Of course you would have to be able to jailbreak your phone to do this.

    Yes if you download another browser app (atomic) that allows you to change the user agent you can.

    Without Jailbraking, there is not way to do it in safari automatically (most websites have a link to the full site, some don't). As mentioned by iggypod, you can download Atomic Web browser from the AppStore and it will allow you to chage the UA id so the website "thinks" you are using a full desktop browser

    Get mercury browser
    Best one I've used
    You can put it in desktop mode so mobile pages don't come up.

    Any mobile site that is properly designed for iPhone should also have a toggle/link at the bottom of the page to switch to the full site.

    I wish they would provide this feature. Broken mobile sites are such a pain.

    Yes to Atomic Browser

    I rarely use Safari anymore. Atomic is very good and has lots of features.

    How can I get safari to go directly to m.Facebook instead of touch.Facebook? When I use touch.Facebook (automatic from safari) it gives me problems like stops allowin me to swipe. I get m.mobile when I open a Facebook thread from my email.

    As far as I know, the best way to accomplish this is to type in m.facebook.com then bookmark it that way. Then it will come up as a suggestion each time you want to go to facebook. I don't think you can default it to go there otherwise.

    I wanted an automatic solution. The app doesn't work properly either
