    Currenty on winter break and have been using my cell phone to keep up with the latest byc info. My phone lets me start posts and send pms but will not let me respond via a post. Has anyone else had this problem? Ive tried using my razor and samsung impression.

    I noticed that I couldn't comment with mine... I'm using a Blackberry Curve 2 on Verizon.

    I've had friends who love their iPhones and others who hate them. I'm a big fan of the Blackberries, though.

    Normally I would use a computer to post things but right now Im using my Ipod touch, so if this posts I would imagine so would the iPhone. [​IMG]

    You can post on BYC using an iPod Touch or iPhone because they both have a real web browser (Safari). It's pretty easy.

    If you have a text-based browser on your phone, you probably won't be able to post.

    I use the Opera Mini browser to read and post to BYC from my cell phone. I had to download it and install it on my miniSD card; it didn't come with my phone.

    Yeah, I wouldn't say Opera Mini is my absolute favorite cell phone browser...but it's what works on my phone, so I deal with it.

    The site isn't designed for a pure mobile experience, but I'm a firm believer that most cell phones will be supporting a better browser experience (like the iPhone) pretty soon.

    We've debated if we should put in the effort to create a pure mobile friendly version of the site and forum, but for now we've decided not to make it a priority.
