Got it to work...
what i meant by no messages was that i couldnt reply to messages (as mentioned before), on mobile or desktop. got that fixed when i cleared the cache and cookies.
Still not sure why my desktop came up in the mobile version though.
Issue is with the ajax buttons. If you have an old js file it calls to a write opperation that no longer exists. No matter how many times you click it it will never do anything. Well other than return an error on my end. Usually I try to make sure they are renamed so that does not happen. In some cases though because the file shares the same name the browser does not recache the new file. This is one of the reasons that I used to set skin preference with cookie and not a dB write. With all the requirements of the apps and some other sites that share the VS database however that was no longer an issue.
