    plowsite and lawnsite both have a mobile version of the site. I dont like it though, you cant check pms, or view profiles or chevk your visitor msgs. All you can do is read and reply. I wish there was an option to view in destop mode on the phone.

    one site i go to here and there has a really nice iphone/mobile interface for thier forum that has all the options still. www.everythingicafe.com.

    But a moose river media iphone app would be the coolest! Haha!!

    I'm on plowsite on my phone every day. I can check PM's, and do basically everything I can here at the computer.

    I can do on my phone it treo 700wx. I could check PM too. But there little disadvantage with pictures it not show until you click on image to view it.

    Good point Mil. I was also going to say that there are slight disadvantages to it, but that's to be expected I suppose. I'd assume maybe its certain phones or plans that are limited to what you're capable of doing. Mine's a Blackberry Curve through Verizon.

    Ebay, craigslist, etc show full size images right away.

    I have an iphone and images show like normal on mine too whatever site i go on. hwever for some reason plowsite and lawnsite detect that it is a mobile device and all i can view is the dummed down mobile version without a chose to view the site any differently. its kinda frustrating.

    EDIT: I dont know how I missed this all this time but I can view private msgs on the mobile site. I just went and checked, lol. I normally just hit NEW POSTS

    This is information I didn't need to know. As it is I get on here for a couple hours at a time, and it seems like only minutes.

    You can, you just have to find it. User CP maybe. I get alerted in an email if I have a PM. I just click the link and it takes me to my inbox. That's how I respond to PM's so quickly ;)

    what is the address? I tried plowsite.com but the error I get is that the pages can't be chunked up small enough.

    My phone will do facebook mobile no prob.
