    can i now get rid of my computer and just use the phone?

    i know many of you have had smart phones for a while, have you been able to use the phone solely for your internet needs

    smartphones are decent for easy duties like posting on message boards and watching Youtubes and sending email. but unless you somehow managed to score a plan with unlimited data, hang on to your home internet connection. for example, if you watched one movie on Netflix, you've used up about 1 gig right there.

    Dawg's automatically switches to mobile mode when on the phone. Poker doesn't work in mobile mode. You have to set your phone to desktop mode so it sees all websites as if you are on a computer. At least that's what I had to do.
    This goes for porn sites as well.


    I still prefer a computer over the phone, but the phone really is a tiny computer.

    unfuckinbelieveable.. you could never score a plan like that on the iPhone..around here anyway.

    actually, i had "unlimited data" on my Razr 2, but browsing the net was a very tedious task. after 4 or 5 page loads, the browser would crash. i couldn't even browse Dawg's on that phone because of all the additional trinkets here, let alone post.

    You should have gotten the motorola triumph instead if you were going to go with Virgin.

    There is also a button on the website called "pc mode" you can click to switch the website to PC mode over mobile mode.

    He has virgin mobile, virgin, cricket and boost all have cheap plans like that. Only bad thing is you have to have their phones and they are limited. For somebody like sip, him and party animal being the last smart phone holdouts, the phones are futuristic.

    Duh. The problem is when I switch to pc mode it takes me here. http://www.dawgsaloon.com/index.php Then when I navagate to The Bar or poker it switches back to mobile.

    Desktop mode disables mobile mode so that all websites show up the way God intended.

    Well Duh, I wasn't aware of that. I don't need to play poker for 15 hours straight like you have done so I have no reason to sit on the toilet taking a shit while playing on my phone.

    You have never taken dubs from me. I lose dubs, never to you. I have taken over 10k a pop from you before. You pout like a baby.

    Could have happened, I don't know, nor do I care because if you haven't realized, it isn't real money. When I had a bunch of dubs I walked into a Ferrari dealership and offered to pay in dubs and they turned me down.

    You don't care but you say you can beat me. Kinda hard to beat me when you have no dubs to play with. :jj:
