My phone all of a sudden keeps reverting to the mobile mode search in google, I hate the view in mob mode and much prefer the classical mode but I have to keep switching from mob mode to classical mode I didn't have to this before! Anyone any idea why this is happening?

Thanks

Found this on another thread, maybe it will help.
So, the issue is that Google is recognizing that a request is coming specifically from the iPhone, and sending you to their mobile site. Why? That's a question for Google.

How to beat it? Trick google.com into thinking you're not an iPhone.

go to
www.google.com/search?q=+&client=firefox

that should do it. It brings you to an empty results page, but it is Google Classic.

Try to take it back to Apple to see what they say. you don't have anything to loose.
