I have to change my user agent to "iPhone" so that I can get connected to the internet through my smartphone.

The problem is that I can get the desktop versions of many sites even the Google Docs start page. But, when I choose a document to view/edit, It opens the mobile mobile. I tried to put some arguments to force the desktop version (ex : ...&nomobile=1) but it is not working.

How can I force the desktop version to be shown in Google Docs on my phone?

If the page uses CSS @media types, then changing the useragent or URL queries will do little, since the CSS can be strictly defined by display dimensions. –  iglvzx Feb 14 '12 at 21:36

iPhone browser will not work well in a desktop version of a document. There is a link at the bottom of the page (saw it on ipad so I assume it will be there on iphone), but the page does not render well and I doubt it would on the iPhone either.
