Hi All,

I live in Australaia and this year i'm doing my Diploma in website development yay!. So this week my assessment was to make a mobile website. Now I put this together fairly quickly and I'm happy with the wa

y it works.The link is http://www.joelsjunk.comxa.com/mobile/ Now when i use online simulators for iPhone's and high end Androids it works perfectly, it narrows down to around 320px which makes the menus and text size work perfectly. However i have a Nokia Lumia 520 and a Samsung Young GT-S5360T (both cheap phones) and when I view the website through them they just zoom out like its on a pc and the text is to small and the menu's are all stretched. It's works fairly well when i put the phone horizontally but vertically its hopeless. So should i just disregard these phones and trust the simulators and if not how do i fix this issue.

Thanks Guys,

Joel
