Default mobile site

Is there a new mobile version of the site? I do a lot of browsing on my tmobile g1 and the site totally changed today. It looks like a mobile optimized version, but there are features missing that I use all the time like the New Posts and My Replies links. There is also no link (that I can find) to switch the site back to normal view. Am I missing something? Otherwise, I like this new mobile version it is very fast.

Also got a page not found error when submitting new post, and the quick reply box doesn't seem to work (no button for it)

Interesting, is there a special URL or does vbulletin just recognize mobile browsers and do things automagically? I occasionally browse from my palmTX using the blazer browser (horrible) but might try opera mini.

im guessing that it is autodetecting, but it didnt do this until today for my phone. id prefer the normal site until the mobile one gets the features I use.

Yes we put into effect a mobile browsing version.

Please keep listing problems and we will fix them as you list them.

Thanks TxBrew.

Just for clarity:

1. I'd like to be able to switch between mobile/non-mobile version, even on my phone

2. Need links to NewPosts/MyReplies (at least for me, I use those a LOT)

3. The submit new thread gave me a page not found (but I thinkt it submitted my thread)

4. The quicky reply box needs a button

Cool, when I get home tonight I'll spend some time surfing on the palm TX with both blazer and opera mini 3.1 (or 4.x if I get time to install it)

I'm using a verizon dare with it's own crappy browser. In any case, I see no difference in browsing on either setting. To me it's indistinguishable from my experience over the last few months. Can you mark the pages if it detects mobile browsing or is the interface strikingly different?
