My friends and I like to go on IRC during our boring lectures at university, using our phones. One of them has a Desire as well, using AndChat, the same IRC client I use. However, his IRC works fine. Mine decides it won't update for a few minutes at a time. So I'm pretty much out of the conversation, then it updates all at once and I have a flood of messages. It's not really practical. My theory is that it's related to my network. I can't connect to the university's wifi because of the authentication they have set up to log in. I have to use mobile data. I'm on T-Mobile (I'm in the UK), and my friend is on Orange. Recently Orange and T-Mobile merged their networks, but I don't think that's the problem. Any ideas? Does anyone with a Desire on T-Mobile have the same problem? It works fine when I'm connected to my home wifi. IRC is hardly a network hog.
