1. Do you have Google on your phone?

Just Google it and there it is! I don't think there's an app for Androids or iPhones.

6. Help! I tried to do this and now my phone display is desktop not mobile.

I have it set to mobile in my account settings.

I could not make DU a home screen icon on my iPhone 6. There was no way to turn on or off the option.

I mistakenly clicked on an icon that looks like a desktop monitor when I was navigating my way out of the box with arrow icon area.

Help! I want my mobile view back. Somehow, it has been overridden by clicking the desktop monitor icon.

Edit: whew! I closed the DU safari window on my iPhone, opened a new safari window and voila! My mobile DU is back!

7. I am having trouble understanding as I use the same IOS (current is 10.3.3)

on my iphone 5s and your iphone6 and the procedures in that article worked. Did you log in to DU itself and go to your "account" on DU to double check that "preferred format for MOBILE devices is mobile" while preferred format for regular web browsers is standard or classical)?

I'm not sure what you hit accidentally, but it sounds like maybe you created a regular bookmark,

Sorry, CB, but if you created an icon at all, you can hold on to it until it starts to jiggle and delete and start over.
