Default View normal web pages?

Please Login to Remove!

I don't really like the mobile versions of most websites. How can I set my phone to view the site as if I was on a laptop/desktop

Thanks,
Justin

This isn't something you turn on or off.
Just go to the webpage you would normally go to on a laptop/desktop.

If its designed to scale down to a small screen, such as that of a mobile device, then it will look somewhat normal.
If it's not meant to be viewed on a mobile phone, then it's going to look pretty garbled.

There really isn't any magical converter to make a "normal" website appear nicely on a mobile screen.

This gives the same internet as T-Zones on T-Mobile do? What's the advantage?

I dont know, im not on tmobile.
The advantages are that Opera Mini often displays pages better than the other browsers. it always compresses pages so if youre on a limited data plan you wont use as much data.
Opera Mini 4 BETA displays sites differently than Opera Mini 3. Opera Mini 4 displays the entire page the way it would look on a computer and then you can zoom in to various parts. I havent tried it yet.

Go to operamini.com and you can see an online demo of each. you can actually enter in a website address and see what it would look like on your BB.
