    my T600 has always been able to access google and google news pages nomally. that is, I was able to view them as they would be seen on a PC. I don't have a computer. so my unit is my lifeline. I had a hardware problem, and got it replaced. was hoping for a 650 but I got another 600 which is fine. google used to have this feature that enabled me to view google search results normally (cached, and many results/page). but its optimizing for my device and with the new unit, I can't seem to view them in any mode except being optimized for my unit, which is a real pain in the ****.

    this is a google issue. not palm or sprint. so I emailed them and got this reply:

    it didn't work. so...any suggestions as to how to get google to view as a "desktop mode" as I used to be able to?

    I'm not entirely sure if I'm understanding your problem, but I use the URL and I get multiple results (10 per page) on my 600. There's no "page adapted..." message on it either.

    since I cannot provide screenshots, I just have to vaguely describe it. the /palm idea is a slight improvement, but doesn't give me the cached/similar pages-google news, froogle...yada yada.

    if you go to the google homepage on a pc...thats what I used to get on my fone. no more.

    I just want to go back to what I had. despite googles email, there is no link to resume a regular view...where it says "page has been adapted".

    all I get is a "report problem" link.

    the /palm idea is still modified. its an improvement, but no news links.

    for example, I want to know the results of this weeks motogp race. and the modified-googleized-view makes that difficult.
