Please stop force-redirecting your phones to mobile websites!
I'm sick and tired of being unable to access the full functional versions of some websites on my phone, simply because you keep force-redirecting it to nonfunctional mobile versions, with no way to override your redirects so I can access the version that actually works on my phone! My phone is fully capable of accessing the full web versions of every site on the net, if only you'd let it do so, instead of force-redirecting it to nonfunctional mobile versions for someone still using a 2G phone that should be gone by now!

Page redirection is handled by the web site, not the mobile carrier.

You can use a different mobile browser, such as Chrome, that has a setting labeled "Request desktop site". First go to your desired website, and some sites will auto redirect to the mobile version. Now go into Chrome settings and click on "Request desktop site". That will cause switch to what you want.

and probbly break the site from displaying properly, modible websites have specific code to fall within the capabilities of the device and prevent using functionality that is specificly designed for PC browsers.

it works fine for me on my 10 inch.  some websites do crash out of javascript or something.   I am doing that here with no problem so I can see all the related topic links on the right side of the screen.
