Okay this is getting frustrating. I accidentally went to the full version of the forums on my phone. Now trying to get back to the mobile version is a ROYAL pain in the rear.

I'm now in the 'Beta Mobile'. I would like to go back to the normal mobile version. How? There is no option.

I would HIGHLY recommend getting the WPCentral App for your phone. It is A LOT better for most things than the browser when it comes to a phone.

Tap on "Full Site", which will take you back to the desktop version. Once you're back in the desktop version, then tap on "default mobile style" at the bottom of the page.

Sorry Laura,

There is no "Default Mobile Style" option. Or at least that I can find. Just "WPCentral 2012" or "Metro [BETA]"

I can't take screenshots on a WP7.8 device, but I'll show you using desktop screenshots. I have all the options in IE9 on my WP7.8 device, and the following screenshots are from IE10 in Windows 8 (modern version, not desktop version). I do not see why WP8's IE10 would lack a setting present in other WP/Windows 8 browsers.

Guzzler, to be clear, you're talking about the previous version of the mobile site? We just implemented the 'Metro [BETA]' style to test and work out the bugs. Right now the desktop and this mobile view are both selectable. Is the new mobile theme not working out well for you? We can certainly turn on the previous mobile theme, but we do want to move towards the 'Metro [BETA]' once we work out any kinks.
