How can I redirect my website for mobile?

I know I have to create a new website for mobile, but how do I make it so that the mobile automatically redirects to my mobile website.

Your phone will NOT just recognize if there is a mobile version available.

If your website is built correctly, you only need a stylesheet. Then when you are adding the <link /> tag, add the media type as handheld like this media="handheld"

So when the webpage is accessed by a mobile device, the browser will know to load the handheld css file.

The other option is to add some kind of check to see if the browser is on a mobile phone. For example in PHP on an HTC phone

<?php
if($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'] == ‘HTC_Pro_T7272 Opera/9.50′) {
header(‘http://domain.com/mobileversion");
exit();
}
else
{
echo ‘Show regular site for PCs.’;
}
?>

What is the best mobile broadband dongle?

What is the best mobile broadband dongle, network and reception, I am with three at the moment, but when I download say from steam,it takes forever, any advice would be appreciated.

in my experience, given that the dongle has strong signal reception (full bars) it all boils down to services.

HDSPA Services that support down-link speeds of 1.8, 3.6, 7.2 and 14.0 Megabits/s. Further speed increases are available with HSPA+, which provides speeds of up to 42 Mbit/s downlink and 84 Mbit/s with Release 9 of the 3GPP standards

even if you connect to 3.5MB this doesnt mean the provider will let you download at that speed also. you might find that it can get as slow as @$@%@#$% dialup modem.

Factors are in play are, service limiting download speed regardless of connection, saturation, link quality.

I suggest if you have acces to different dongles, do live test when and where you actually will use it.

my favorite is www.speedtest.net, just choose the closest server to have better test results, far away connections may result in mid location servers to cause delays.

Mobile Phone Deal: Choose the Way you Talk

Zeroing in on a mobile phone deal was never easy but it would become so abstruse a matter was certainly beyond anyone’s expectation. The travesty of this fact is even more ironical. It is nothing but a problem of choice i.e., too many options available to consumers in the process of competition in the market to woo more and more of them. Selecting a mobile phone deal is a heady mixture of just too many parameters, viz. a befitting mobile handset, feasible tariff plan and applicable network options. To say that they barely are ‘tip of the iceberg’ wouldn’t be an overstatement.

Don’t get me wrong as I am neither cynical towards fetching a mobile phone deal nor am I apprehensive of too many options. Caution is the undercurrent of this write-up as selection a proper mobile phone deal is nothing less than any of your decisions.

Before you make up your mind on a particular mobile phone deal, it is always suggested to be very clear of your priorities. Answering these questions would probably help your cause-

How often d you intend to use your phone?

What kind of services are you looking forward to?

What are the network options available in your area and to most of the people you would be calling?

Do you often need to go overseas for business/leisure purposes?

Based on your response to these queries, you may decide on pay as you go mobile phone, contract mobile phones or pay up front mobile phone deals. Every one of these options has their own pros and cons for which nobody else could be help responsible but your own choice. So, make sure that before you reach on a decision to nail down on a particular mobile phone deal, go through trivia of the website, transparency of offers and how good it is in providing you with an efficient and effective comparison chart of various manufacturers, networks and tariff plans.

Mobile-phone-deal-uk.co.uk seem to be one of those website which has taken the pains of providing consumers with a well-built comparison chart and they have listed a wide range of mobile handsets along with flexible mobile phone deals to justify your decision and make you feel prudent when you come home with a deal.

Broadband Comparisons : a Strategy to Find the Best Service Provider

Internet has become important for both office and home purposes. So, people have started to use its services to meet their personal requirements as well as business requirements. A number of service providers of broadband connection have emerged. On subscribing services from them, it becomes possible for people to avail continuous Internet connection at very low service charge. Moreover, the broadband helps people overcome the inconveniences that traditional dial up connection poses. Now it is possible to access the broadband even on a mobile phone and so the people can keep surfing Internet even while they are on a move.

Various broadband companies such as Vodafone, Orange, O2, 3G and T-mobile have emerged. These companies are trusted for the un-diminishing customer service that they provide. They are recognised world-wide for their services that are slated to be the best. But the broadband company too differs in terms of the various plans that it offers. It is possible to find cheap plans as well as plans that require quite a large investment. So, customers actually have to judge the various service providers in terms of the cost involved and long term billing options.

Online billing options have eased the way bills are being remitted. It is possible for people to stay connected to Internet and avail broadband service from a service provider by paying bills online from any place. Thus the service is not localised to a particular region and users can keep travelling while accessing the broadband network from a service provider. In fact, this is one firm ground based on which broadband comparisons are made. Then there are also other parameters on which a broadband service provider is judged. One of the parameter is the ‘cost of broadband service’. People can easily find service providers, but to find a provider with less service charge is difficult. So, people should only opt for a broadband company that offers outstanding broadband services at low cost.

There is a general perception among people that all the broadband providers have same plans, deals and tariffs. But this is not the case. The monthly charges may be the same, but then the deals and other services are always different. In order to find a large number of clientele, the providers offer many attractive discounts and deals. Websites mostly display all the offers and deals of the service providers. It helps people to compare the various broadband deals. Customers can find authentic information on various websites.

What’s the best company to get a mobile broadband card and data package for my Mac?

So i’m looking at ditching my DSL all together and getting a mobile broadband card for my Mac book pro so i can pretty much get the internet anywhere i go (not out of the country). Good idea? bad idea? I’ve only ever had a t-mobile phone before so i don’t know what AT&T, sprint, verizon, or any of the others are like. suggestions?

I guess it depends. Most wireless broadband providers (except Clearwire) have limitations on their usage, mostly a 5GB limit per month, after which they charge overages or slow your connection.

Clearwire offers ‘unlimited’ usage, but I have heard they throttle their connections to manage their network.

If you download a lot (like TV shows, songs, games) and use a lot of gigs a month, better to stick with DSL. If you only use internet for things like email, web browsing, occasional videos, you should be fine.
