    As far as I know there are 4 different ways to use Facebook on your iPhone: the full site, m.facebook, touch.facebook, and the lousy app. They all kind of lack for some surprising reason except for the full site of course (when it works properly and allows me to switch from "Top News" to "Most Recent").

    That said, is there a way I can default my phone to only load the full site? Unless I use the facebook.com/home.php link every time, it loads the touch site. And clicking links from Facebook SMS bring me to the mobile site. And the official app is lacking so much which is unfortunate. Help?

    Have you tried creating a bookmark/adding the full-site link to your home screen?

    Oh yeah, I forgot to mention this. While this will work, the second you hit the Facebook logo in the top left of the site to go back to your news feed, it loads the touch version again. So it's sort of useless as selecting the /home.php link in Safari is just as easy as having an icon for it.
