    I'm curious about this as well... If anyone has experience please share..

    I assume you need to detect the user agent programmatically, then display the site accordingly

    It depends how your site is built. If it is a WP site, you want a responsive theme. These theme rearrange elements on the page so that they fit differently depending on the screen resolution. To see what I mean review this mobile responsive theme:

    http://demo.studiopress.com/metro/

    When you look at the site, make the window of your browser smaller or larger and see how the theme changes design.

    So if your customers are viewing the site on a phone, they will we get a nice usable site.

    Does that help?

    This is one method. We create mobile sites for businesses and we embed a script in the static site html so that when it is accessed from a phone it will go to the mobile site but if accessed by a computer then it will go to the regular page.

    Pm me for more details

    You should have a responsive theme and if you don't you can install the WP touch plugin.

    We always see to it that the site is responsive. You can use media queries for displaying and optimizing your existing websites.

    For the first option you can redirect mobile users to a completely different URL where you host a mobile only version of the site.
