I get the same thing here in the states. So it's not a local thing.

I have the same problem on an HTC. Their page is trying to detect mobile phone browsers (the 'm' in the url) and it's possible that they just haven't redesigned their mobile page yet to be compatible. They have a ton of javascripts running on the main page as well, and though iphone supports js, some javascripts aren't so bright.

Not sure about the IPhone settings. Neil if your HTC is an Android or windows phone you can turn mobile browsing off and the website will not know its being viewed by a phone.

I have another iphone question. I checked my email, via my iphone, this morning. I had several emails, but one in particular that I was interested in, so I went to my computer to answer the email, and it wan't there! That was at 6:30 this morning. It still isn't there. Why in the world would my iphone have it and my computer not? All of the other new emails on the iphone this morning were also on the computer. I'm new to the iphone, so any help appreciated. Thanks.

Maybe your computer has rules which sorts your mail into folders, check junk mail. Your iPhone just displays everything raw.

Look at the rules you have established both on your I-phone and your e-mail client on your computer. Often you can set it up so that you don't download e-mail from the server that has already been downloaded. If that is the case then if the e-mail has been downloaded to your phone then you won't get it on your computer.

This is the way I have my e-mail set up using both Outlook and Outlook Express from gmail's server.

@Juanita - I don't know what type of email account you are using, but some POP3 accounts remove an email from the server once it is opened. It all depends on how the account is set up. Or, as others have suggested, there may be rules on your computer that has forced the email into another folder, such as junk mail or spam. To keep your email in synch, some services, such as gmail have an IMAP service that keeps your email in synch on both your iPhone and your computer (if you read an email on one device, IMAP marks it as read on the other device). There is also a service that Apple provides called Mobile Me that could also be used to keep your emails in synch (as well as cloud access to other documents and files).
A quick fix is to forward the email to yourself from your iPhone. It should show up on your computer. Unfortunately, if you want to reply to the email, you'll have to "dig" the sender's email address out of the thread.

I have hotmail. I checked the junk folder and even deleted (just in case) and it wasn't in either folder. It's just odd because it's the ONLY ONE. I've had the phone for a couple of weeks now, and all emails have been on both the phone and the computer. After I read them on my iphone, they still show as new on my computer. I'm OK with that because I don't usually respond much from the phone and that way it reminds me when I open the email on the computer. No worries, really, unless it starts happening a lot. Thanks for the replies.
