    Hi all, I am experiencing a gateway timeout error (error 504) with one specific website.. the site is

    My phone is a brand new Nexus 5, and all other websites work fine. Also, the problem website works fine for me when I am on wifi, so I know it's not the phone.

    Can anyone offer any advice? I've opened a case with T-Mobile, but it's been 5 days without a resolution.

    While normally that is server side, it's also been known to be a DNS issue. If you can't see it and others can then 9 times out of 10 that is a DNS problem.

    You'll just have to wait for their DNS nameservers to repropagate.

    If you cant wait, then just use IP address.

    No dice on using the IP address. I still get the 504 error.

    I elevated the case with TMobile, and they insist that the problem is with blocking the IP addresses. I do not believe this at all (I work for the company and have spoken with the web people here).

    Could you guys (who are on TMobile) do me a favor and try accessing through your mobile browser? If it works, let me know what model phone you are using. Thanks!

    By the way, T-Mobile has given up on tryng to solve the issue. They told me that their engineers have tried everything possible, and that the only way I can access this site is to go to another carrier. WTF??

    That said, a 504 error should be a server-side error (same goes for pretty much all of the 500-series HTTP errors).

    Well, looks like my only recourse is to switch carriers. I have to kiss the T-Mobile $30/month plan goodbye it seems. :(

    This is strange. I cant access it too from my HTC One on Tmo. I got Gateway timeout and 504.

    What port # is it using?

    Have you try to do tether?

    Forgive my ignorance, but how do I check the port number?

    Tethering is not working for me either - tis is a known issue with the Nexus 5 on TMobile. Further reason for me to switch to Straight Talk, I suppose.

    I am still in disbelief that T-Mobile has flat out refused to address my issue! Very frustrating.

    It's HTTP, and thus port 80 unless there is a proxy or other resource on the other side of the web server.

    Strangely, it's now working this morning. Anyone have any ideas?
