    Default iPhone Internet Tethering
    I was talking to someone the other day on one of the horrible phone shops about Internet Tethering.

    I was wondering if any of you knowledgeable peeps would know the answer to this question:
    With exception to sites designed for the iPhone (such as facebook, gmail) - When websites are viewed on the iPhone, are they the original sites as would be displayed on a computer or are they mobile sites optimized for a device such as the iPhone.

    Thanks in advance

    Edit:
    By original sites, i mean in terms of size. If I visit apple.com on an iPhone would the completed front page use the same bandwidth OTA as it would over ADSL/cable on a computer

    The iPhone displays the "normal desktop" site unless there is a redirect to a mobile or iPhone optimized site. And yes, standard sites use the same bandwidth as a desktop would. You can disable images form being displayed in iPhone's Safari through an app in Cydia.
    Until the next time… And if I help you out, give me a "Thanks!" Thanks!
