AAT Website on your mobile?

Was wondering if any lovely people would be able to help a luddite?

I have finally given in and got a smartphone (HTC Wildfire). I know a lot of people seem to be able to use the internet on their mobiles without any problems at all so I'm wondering if I am doing something wrong.

If I bring up the AAT website on mine everything is tiny and completely impossible to read - is this how it always is? I checked the settings in my phone and enabled the thing about mobile versions of websites so the BBC for example is perfectly readable.

Is it just a case of the AAT not having a mobile version??

If anyone can help I'd be very grateful - I don't know any teenagers otherwise I'd have asked them - I think I'm now at that age where technology is bypassing me!!!

    Quite possibly.

    AFAIK all mobile browsers will default to the mobile site if there is one available.

    Is there a button on the side of the phone which makes the text bigger if you press it?

    Hi Jenny3549. I've also got the HTC Wildfire and have the same problem! Don't know if it's the phone or the website as I have the same problem with several other sites! Sorry I can't be of any help but if you find the answer please let me know! Su

    Thanks Monsoon, I suppose I thought that the AAT would be a bit like the BBC website!!!

    Claire, unfortunately the only button on the side is my ringer volume - but I did ding it a few times just in case.

    Sue, don't know if this is the answer but fiddling round again I've just discovered that I can expand what I'm looking at by pinching it - like you do with a photo. Still not sure this is the best way but it's a start!!!

    hey Jenny,

    Monsoon is Spot on if No "mobile Version" of Site exisits then you get std Version, like you were on a PC, you can either double tap and it will zoom or Pinch to zoom on andrioid (wildfire os) :D

    Thanks Slackda!

    The pinching to zoom seems to work ok so I can now have the AAT on the move!
