    Hey folks,

    I wondered if the automatic redirection of some websites to their mobile versions in Safari Mobile can inhibited somehow. Sometimes I don't like the mobile versions and would rather wish to surf the original websites.

    Any advices?

    I'm not aware of any generic method of doing this, but I have found that a lot of sites only have the redirection on their initial page - so if you can bookmark any other non-mobile page on their site, and follow the links from there, you can get around the redirection.

    I would just go ahead and download a 3rd party browser.

    I've tried nearly all of the replacement web browsers available in the App store, and Perfect Browser and Atomic Web are among the best.

    Both provide a "spoofing" feature, where you can have the browser identify itself as any desktop or mobile browser you choose, and avoid the mobile versions of pages whenever you like.

    Unless it's jailbroken, I don't think there is a way

    If it is jailbroken, go into cydia/rock, and search for "UAFaker". Its a SBSettings plugin that prevents mobile site redirection by making the website think that your using a desktop
