Going live with website.

I built a site and tested it's responsiveness the entire way by resizing the window. I even used chrome's dev tools to preview a variety of devices. I have the viewport meta tag and media queries are working. However, once I went live with the site and tested it on my iphone, only 3/4 of the site's content loaded leaving a white bar of nothing on the right side for the entire length of the site. If anyone has an idea of how to help I will gladly post some code snippets. Thanks.

Post code.

Any specific areas? There is quite a bit. I'll start with html head and media queries.

html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <title>Meet Zimni</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="css/style.css">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width">
    <link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Josefin+Sans:100,400' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
  </head>
css
@media (max-width: 1024px) {
  .primary-content,
  .secondary-content {
    width: 90%;
}
  .features {
    float: none;
    width: 100%;
    margin: auto;
    padding: auto;
  }
  .features#middle-guy {
    border: none;
  }
  .row {
    margin: 0;
  }
  .intro {
    padding-top: 5%;
  }
  .form {
    width: 100%;
    padding-bottom: 5%;
  }
  .twitter-cta {
    padding: 10% 12%;
    margin: 50px  0 20px;
}
}

@media (max-width: 768px) {
  .logo {
    position: static;
    margin: -6% auto;
    padding: 0;
  }
  .primary-content,
  .secondary-content {
    width: 100%;
    padding: 20px;
    border-top: none;
}
  .main-header {
    max-height: 380px;
    padding: 50px 25px 0;
}
  .title {
    font-size: 1.3rem;
    border: none;
}
  h1 {
    font-size: 1.7rem;
    line-height: 1.1; 
}
  .arrow {
    display: none;
}
  .intro {
    font-size: 1rem;
}
  .features {
    float: none;
    width: 100%;
    margin: 0 auto;
    padding: 0 auto;
  }
  .features#middle-guy {
    border: none;
  }
  .form {
    width: 100%;
  }
  .twitter-cta {
    width: 100%;

  .twitter-cta h2 {
    font-size: 2.2rem;
  }
  .main-footer {
    padding: 20px 0;
}
}

Have you tried validating the HTML? Sometimes the validator can find tags that are not being closed. Obvious reasons could be an image or HTML element that has a fixed size. I am leaning towards HTML that is not completely closed, an extra div that may have been overlooked.

Ok cool. I'll try that. Thanks.

There are 2 places where you have padding: auto, not sure this is a valid declaration

Also try changing the viewport to

meta name="viewport" content="width-device-width, initial-scale=1.0"
