It sounds like you need to include a viewport tag into your HTML.

Put this code into the head element of any page on your site,

<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0, minimum-scale=1.0" />

And it'll force devices to view the site in the device resolution, putting your responsive code into action. :)
