    Quite a few websites out there, like Yahoo!, try to help mobile users out by offering mobile versions of their sites, which load automatically.

    The problem, though, is that I've got a mobile device, a Treo 650, which can handle the "regular" versions of a lot of those webpages. In fact, sometimes I prefer the regular version.

    Is there a way to force the device or site to show me the version I want to see, instead of the one it thinks I want to see?

    Thanks, in advance.

    What I do is save the direct url to the page I want and paste it as a bool mark.

    I usually browse to the page in xiino and copy the url and paste it in the url field or save it as a book mark I fou don't have xiino you can just copy the url from the desktop and email your treo a list of your links or paste into memo or what ever. Foe example instead of going through www.yahoo.com go directly to us.f500.mail.yahoo/ym/login?.....etc.... Make sense?

    If I'm understanding you, you're saying that using a pc, for instance, to go to the sites you want, then getting to the sign-in page, gives you access to a more specific url and that THAT's the one I should use. Yes?

    (I don't know what "xiino" is.)

    I thought I'd given that a try before. Maybe I'm misremembering, though. Have you done this successfully on a Treo 650?

    Yes I do that successfully. I save a folder on the sd card full on internet short cuts that I port from on device to another so that I can go directly to my page I need. It drives me nuts that Blazer dumps me in the wap page....... C'Mon Blazer/yahoo!!!! I have a $600.00 friggen mobile computer not a Moterolla Star Tac!!!!!

    Ya, copy the url of your inbox for yahoo mail and open the palm desktop or Out Look and save it as a memo then sync then on the treo open memo, copy the url, open blazer, open bookmarks view and tap an empty slot, tap the text box labeled "URL" containing the text "http://" and paste the url you copied. Make sure you dont have http://http:// which happens sometimes when you paste url's...


    Xinno is the fastest, easiest to use, most stable, most useful palm browser that ever existed...... get it here---->http://www.mobirus.com/eng/products/Xiino/

    It doesn't dump you into mobile (WAP) sites. But its not as pretty as Blazer.

    wow.

    thanks a lot, for all the info.


    i noticed, on that site, that xiino allows javascript. does that mean i could play a game like Yahoo! Dominoes or something on the Treo 650?

    I dont know anything about that.

    I didnt know xiino did much with javascript. It doesn't handle javascript as well as blazer does. What xiino does is renders pages quickly.

    I found this on yahoo:

    If the problems you are experiencing with Yahoo! Games include:


    getting a blank screen
    nothing occurring when you try to join a table
    any similar problem
    You need to double-check that Java and JavaScript are fully enabled in your browser. Follow the steps below for your browser:


    Java and java script are not the same thing. Get java here http://java.sun.com/ or more directly here http://www.sun.com/software/communit...download20.xml or here http://www.palm.com/us/support/jvm/download.html or maybe here http://www14.software.ibm.com/webapp...04CBW71&S_CMP= but I dont know if it will do ya any good with yahoo games.

    I read something that suggested that one cannot have Blazer and xiino at the same time.

    Somewhere else, it seemed that this might be possible. In your experience, is it possible to choose which browser you use? Is it a challenge to set the phone up to work that way?

    I run Xiino in RAM with Blazer although Xiino can go on the card. Are you referring to seting the default browser. If so you can only set one as the default browser of course. I switch them back and forth depending on what Im doing. I use xiino 80% of the time because its so much faster but on my 700p Xiino gives me errors on some sites so I use blazer 20% of the time. I never had an error with xiino on the 650.

    Is there a way, using Blazer, to go to the non-wap version of a site that takes you to the wap version no matter what. For example, I have a direct link to my photos at www.kodakgallery.com, but the site sends me to the wap version no matter what I do.

    They charge you to access their wap version, which is useless to me when I can, obviously,view the real version.

    I'd rather not incur any additional charges (i.e. purchasing Xiino), this phone was expensive enough.

    Sure, delete blazers cache and cookies, then reset then use the direct url. It will then redirect you to sign in then it will take you to the full web version.

    Holey moley that's a lot of work! But if that's what needs to be done, then so be it.
