    I use G-Talk quite heavily despite being massively unreliable - messages dont always come through, sometimes there is no notification for new messages.

    However as of this morning I cant even log in - it says "could not connect to server. Will retry shortly". My internet connection on the phone is fine as I can browse other internet pages and I have called T-Mobile who have confirmed my account is fine.

    Any ideas? Thanks.

    I had this problem on Droid once, a reset in Settings -> Privacy fixed it.

    (Which turned out to be a pretty painless thing to do..)

    A mate of mine who also has a T-Mobile android phone also cant log in. However I know other people who have android phones on other networks who can log in.

    My friend on t mobile with an 'LG InTouch Max GW620' (also android) has the same problem; no gtalk on mobile network, but it works on wifi.

    Looks like t mobile is blocking it?
