    Hi there,

    i wanted to know how can I browse trough websites, fooling them to think i am not on an iPhone.
    The iPhones safari is great, and specially designed pages for it better. but some websites, like the one of my bank don't let you do some stuff when you're on a phone. If i remember there was a cydia app that did exactly that, fooled the website. Does anyone remember the name of it or knows other way to do it?

    tks

    Don't know about apps - but one way to "fool" the site is to search for it in Google and then click the links from there. That is how I get to the full NFL site instead of the mobile one.

    There's a browser called Bolt which tricks the websites into thinking you're using either Internet Explorer or Firefox. I haven't actually used the app, so let me know how it works if you get it.

    It doesn't work on mine. www.showmyip.com still says" Safari 4 on iPhone".

    It's switched on in SBsettings and I did a respring for good measure. :(

    Wikipedia still takes me to the mobile version.


    EDIT: Both www.showmyip.com and wikipedia use javascript to detect the browser. Turning off JS works. I get the full page on wiki now.
