    I have looked at my website on my iphone and it appears to be fine, I don't need to scroll left or right, all of the images are appearing correctly and not distorted or anything like that. The website appears almost identical to how it does on my computer.

    Does that mean my website is mobile friendly?

    I'm not sure if I'm missing something, if there is an attribute on the website that should be implemented to ensure its mobile friendly 100%? Appreciate any response!

    Iphone impliments a way more advanced mobile web. To truly test if you are mobile ready try and find a friend with an older phone with the web, and see what it looks like on there.

    Thanks guys, all of the links you provided helped me a lot. It seems that my website is appearing fine in all of the compatibility testing that I viewed for common phones.

    So should I worry about making a .mobi friendly version of my website that has particular plug-ins etc.? Or because it's appearing fine, not to worry about it?

    In regards to the validation, I did have some issues with my site, these were mainly around the large size of my website which I presume is because of all of the images. I'm not willing to remove any images because it will take away from my website, but if I created a mobile friendly website would it help reduce the size and meet with some more validation issues that came up?

    If the main concern is the appearance of the website, and this is fine for me, I won't worry about redesigning a mobile friendly website, however if there is more to it and just the appearance side of things I would appreciate some feedback on how I should move forward.
