    Gets kinda frustrated being limited by mobile site content. is there a work around to the playbook being recognized as a mobile device besides searching for the full site link?
    Some of these sites dont have this link.

    There is no way to avoid the mobile sites if the web page fails to recognize the PlayBook. Some sites that have been a problem now show the full site. If you post the sites giving you a problem, users here may be able to provide a url to the full site that works on the PlayBook.

    For example, the CNBC web site went to mobile, but a user posted classic.cnbc.com as the URL to get past the mobile site. As of a few months back the regular CNBC site now comes up from the PlayBook, so CNBC must have fixed the problem.

    There's a thread in the Apps subforum with a title something to the effect of "Two apps, rim does not want you to have"

    The programmer has created a separate browser where you can fudge the "user agent" which is what the browser reports to the site. You can act like Firefox, InternetExplorer, Chrome and others. It does not fool all sites but can help. You do have to sideload it - since rim will not approve it.

    I just checked my credit union and changing the useragent showed me different pages each time I logged on.

    The browser does not have some of the features of the native browser

    MSNBC is one of the sites that goes to a mobile site each time. I use the PB with OS 1.07. There is a link at the bottom of the MSNBC page that takes you to the full site but there seems to be no way to save that link as the the list of bookmarks.
