Is it happening from just your phone or other people as well? There are usually 2 different addresses these days, phones get directed to one site and a regular browser another. Such as www.example.com for browsers and m.example.com for phones. It could be a problem with the mobile page being out of date. If not, are you able to try another browser on your phone?

Many websites offer a mobile version of the website designed for smart phones.  These web pages are scaled down to fit better on a smaller screen.  That is why the website looks different.  I would check on the mobile version of the website to see if another version is offered.  Ocassionaly when browsing on my iphone I come across a website that also offers the full version so it can be switched..

Hi,

Mobile devices return different user agents to desktop PCs. If configured to do so, a web-site will re-direct to a mobile version depending on what user agent it detects.

Try changing the browser options on the BlackBerry device to return Internet Explorer rather than BlackBerry - does that direct you to the correct site?

Regards,


RobMobility.

Hi,

Is the BlackBerry configured via a caching proxy server? Is it the cached version which is being seen on the device?
