    Cleared History, Cookies, Cache. But it still not posting my comment, it just deleted all my stored passwords, so now I have to log into all my accounts again

    What's wrong with it?
    Oh one more thing, when I click the link to the comments page from the email it takes me to the non mobile YouTube comments page

    Hmm usually when i have this problem on the youtube app this solves it.
    I sometimes get missing icons on the m.youtube app but it restores it after i clear cache, history etc.

    You can try deleting it and downloading it again.

    My apologies i should have warned you about your passwords being wiped!

    No no, there is no need for apology, I am grateful that you are trying to help me.
    There is also something else that is happening now since I reset the cache etc. When I go to www.twitter.com in safari it will now only open the mobile version of the web site whereas before I could view the desktop version of it.

    Do you know how I can change the setting back to the desktop version?.
    I don't see any option to do this on the web site.

    Is there a option to view the web version of Twitter in desktop view?

    Looks like twitter have changed something because now the iphone safari only seems to open in the mobile version. before i could see twitter in full web version, but now can't.
    Think Skyfire web browser on iphone can still show the full web version of twitter, looks like I will be using that.

    You can always download this web browser from the app store :D

    http://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/mercury-web-browser-pro-the/id348701575?mt=8

    There is an option to make the browser in this app spoof websites into thinking your phone is actually a desktop computer, so it will display full websites instead of mobile versions if you select the "identify browser as" option!

    Atomic web browser is the best one but it appears to be gone from the app store, well the paid version anyway with the full features.

    I either use the YouTube app that came on the iPhone or go to the non mobile version of YouTube. If you decide to use the non mobile version it helps if you turn your iPhone into landscape mode so the que bar isnt in your way.

    Heres a couple pics.

    Op wants to REPLY. Those methods are for creating an initial comment. Reply has been sorely missing all along.

    Any resolution to this? I'm really getting tired of this feature missing. It's a major oversight... it has never, ever worked on YouTube app, Safari, Perfect Browser, Skyfire, or Mercury browset. What gives?

    Yeah I even tried to reply using skyfire and it has the same problem, so still can't reply, I was hoping that the new mobile version of YouTube would have sorted this reply problem out but still not working either

    It's stupid, I have to wait til I get home everyday, switch the computer on just to reply to a YouTube comment :-( Rubbish :(

    Does anyone know if android has this problem or is it just specific to the iPhone and iOS?

    Was thinking about getting an iPad, but now I'm not sure. If there is problems like this with the iPhone, then is this problem on the iPad as well because it's the same iOS?

    Anyone know if there is a YouTube replies app or something like that?, perhaps that could sort it?

    ----------

    Surely, if this works on android and not ios then the problem must be with ios and not YouTube?

    Heya,

    This should work for you.. I will make it easy and put it in easy steps..

    1) go to safari on your iphone
    2) on google type in youtube mobile
    3) log in(if not already logged in)
    4) go to your inbox and click on the message that you want to reply to.. You should also see a video next to it.. Click on the video
    5) Its going to start playing but just stop it and scroll down
    6) click on the text you want to reply untill it becomes gray then let go and a reply button will apear and you can reply like that


    I hope this was clear for you.. It does work.. And all the best of luck!
