    I know how to redirect to a diff URL on Tumblr but, for some reason mobile users are not being redirected. I've done this on blogspot and both web and mobile users get reidrected.. so why aren't they being redirected on Tumblr?

    How do I get this working?

    Whiteboi360,

    You could try a snippet of Javascript to detect if someone is using an iphone to redirect them to a tumblphone version of your blog. Not sure if that would be of any use to you but here is how to do it,

    Here is also another link that talks about detecting visitors' devices using javascript,

    you would have to edit the code of your theme directly to take advantage of these.

    Hope that helps,
