iPhone not triggering mobile page

I have a very strange situation. I am developing an ASP.NET MVC4 (Razor) app in VS2012. I have started to add mobile views (e.g. index.mobile.cshtml) with jQuery mobile and am using a trial of your simulator to test things locally (iPhone). All was going well; when I "Start without debugging" (because it's faster), your simulator would come up with the mobile version of my Home/Index view. I need to test using https so I would then go into the address bar and change the URL (say, from http://localhost:49335 to https://localhost:44300). Then I'd hit enter, the mobile index page would be redisplayed and I'd go on my merry way testing an OpenID login and other pages. All of a sudden (and I know you've heard this many times before) something strange started happening: when I ran without debugging the mobile Home/index page would be displayed in your emulator as before; HOWEVER, when I went in to change the URL to a secure one and hit Enter, the DESKTOP version of Home/Index was displayed. I'm running in a VM and tried restarting, etc., but no matter what I did I'd continue to get this behavior of the Desktop version of my Home/Index being displayed when I attempted to change the URL. OK, strange but maybe there's an explanation; HOWEVER, I installed your trial in another VM which was running VS2012, opened the same project and repeated the experiment and in THAT VM your iPhone emulator CONTINUED to show the mobile version of my pages, even after changing the URL. I can't imagine what could be happening but I'm reluctant to spring for a full version unless and until I can figure out what's going on. Any assistance would be appreciated.
