    Today I went to a couple web sites via Safari on my iPhone assuming that I would see the 'real' website. Instead I was immediately redirected to the mobile phone version of the website. Not exactly the 'real' internet experience I was hoping for.

    One website is After logging in I am directed to the URL

    On my desktop machine I see the 'real' calendar. On my iPhone i see the mini mobile edition of my calendar. The URL in the address bar on the iPhone is the same as the one on my desktop machine but what I see on the screen is quite different.

    Does anyone know if this is some kind of setting either on the iPhone or within google calendar?

    When I go to my gmail account I get the full web page, not the mobile version.

    Thanks for your attention!

    I don't think there's anything that can be done from the iPhone side. The sites are probably looking for the word "Mobile" in the user agent string.

    You should email them.

    Does anyone else have any suggestions on how to make safari view the full web page instead of a "mobile" version. On some sites, no matter what, I am forced to view the websites mobile page instead of the full version.
    Any ideas?

    Many sites are clinging to mobile means mobile (as in crippled down internet) even if the mobile phone is something as powerful as an iPhone.

    Its sad to see this.
