Default Blocked web site

There is a web address that I accessed for months, which is now "unavailable" on my Virginmobile HTC Evo V, using 3G.
On my At&T DSL computer, it is always available, no problem. (No typos, and no adblocking that I know of). Web address source is Centurylink DSL.
Is there a list of blocked Virginmobile web addresses?
Thanks

I've never had this happen nor ever heard of it happening to anyone else. Are you sure you weren't actually connected to a wifi connection that blocks certain sites?

Hello - back again....the IP address that I can no longer access is my own, and I could view my surveillance cameras on it. I can still view the backyard, no problem, but front yard is now impossible to view on my phone....BUT, if I go through a proxy site, such as anonymouse, I can view the front yard no problem, very quickly. Weird.
And on my AT&T DSL, both front yard and back yard are directly viewable.
(I don't know anything about incognito mode...will check). Thanks

Get a file manager, preferably ES File Manager, and delete the file "Hosts" in "/etc" or "/system/etc" then reboot. Though you might need to move a blank file into the old spot where the original file was and rename the blank file as "Hosts".
