I am developing a mobile website using mvc 4 for the first time. A few pages are already developed. Now I need to test this website.

Can please somebody let me know which is the best simulator? If something is available such that I can test iphone, blackberry, htc, Samsung android, nokia lumia, etc all on the same simulator? If not, then which would be the best ones for each or separate ?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Here, ASP.NET MVC website itself shares information about various emulators: ASP.NET MVC 4 Mobile Features [^]
It says:
You will also need a mobile browser emulator. Any of the following will work:
- Windows 7 Phone Emulator. (This is the emulator that's used in most of the screen shots in this tutorial.)
- Change the user agent string to emulate an iPhone. See this blog entry.
- Opera Mobile Emulator
- Apple Safari with the user agent set to iPhone. For instructions on how to set the user agent in Safari to "iPhone", see How to let Safari pretend it's IE on David Alison's blog.

Based on the following article, Opera emulator[^] usage sample: Multiple Mobile Devices Support Websites Using ASP.Net MVC4 Application[^]

Now that I test my mobile website in various emulators I see that the design does not appear correctly in all devices. If i adjust for one then the other goes bad. I am developing a mobile website for the first time. I need to fit my design in devices of all resolutions. For example if I have a form with 2 text boxes in the same line and i test this in iphone it looks fine but if i use a nokia phone, the 2 text boxes appear in 2 separate lines. Also for any page i do not want a scroll to appear so that the user has difficulty in browsing. Please help.
