How would one fill it in on the Firefox plugin for User Agent Switcher?

Just enter the full string above as the user agent (box 2) - the other fields are optional.

That will work, you can use it to set a custom UA - doesn't need to be one of the precanned ones. You can also use skyfire or any third party browser - I believe most support it.

I don't see where I can change the UA on my iphone. I've tried that mercury app, but there is no option for blackberry or manual entry. Also, can't find anything for Chrome mobile app. help?

Or just buy a BlackBerry. The Z10 is definitely better than any existing smartphone.

The fact that you actually have a Z10 is the bad news...

Yeah THAT'S the ticket! A new $600 phone to get a little bit of free wifi. What a slick deal!

Poor BlackBerry. They're losing so much money as it is and now they'll have to pay for thousands of non-blackberry users taking advantage of their promotion...
