Default Connection Problem; (Data is dead)

On my Motion.

Shows 4G but only arrow going UP. No downsies.

Error message shows; Connection Problem; Authentication via the proxy server was unsuccessful.

My WeatherBug widget also is stuck on "update".

Help. What's the deal? Been this way about an hour, I rebooted with no change.

How often is once in a while usually and how long are the outages in central Fla if anyone knows on average?

Happens to me when I'm at work sometimes. You just have weak or no connection. Gotta wait it out.

Hey you Lakelandites, I always thought Lakeland was cool and Shurf Grady Judd makes it just better. "The reason we shot (at) him 135 times was that was all the bullets we had."

My FOOGEE was back up this morning.

Dead again now though.

Strange, they must be working on the towers, this is my first month but in almost a full month this (and yesterday) is the first burp I've seen.

This always happens to me. Try turning airplane mode on and off until it works.
