I trying to display a 2 page long page in a mobile website, i tried text area option but the scroll bars are not getting displayed in iphone mobile web. What are the ways you can think of for displaying a long page and options in the end if that page. What i can think of is pagination and what else are there ?
Though you're displaying text, you might look at adding a graphical element like a patterned vertical line that runs alongside the text. The cut-off of the pattern can suggest that there's more, taking the place of the scroll bars that don't show up.
Alternately, you can design for an iPhone-sized screen and offer a next/previous page control. That might load a second page or just jump down/up in response, but it would make clear when the person is at the end of the text and when there is more to read.
Have you confirmed with anyone using your app / site that this is even a problem yet?
I read many long articles on my phone and have never considered it a problem, even without a scroll bar. The Economist app is an example of this. I know I'm at the end when I try scroll and there isn't anything more.
If it's really a problem for you, you could use something like the slider on the Kindle app for both navigation and position feedback but you would run into other problems determining the position.
