    **UPDATED**********************************************
    I found a work around but requires you to have wi-fi connection first.

    Step 1. Be sure to connect your phone to wi-fi first. Load the game and log in to multiplayer. Stop at the screen where you choose either Create or Join.
    Step 2. Press your home button on your actual phone, and shut off wi-fi.
    Step 3. Go back to the game again (It should reload and log you off) and log back in again.
    Step 4. Now you can play multiplayer online via 3G/4G.

    Simply keep the game loaded (Do not fully close out or end task) and you should be able to play the game over and over again via 3G/4G.
    *****************************************************

    I bought the game NOVA by Gameloft on my Palm Pre. I played multiplayer online over 3G just fine. This morning I bought NOVA for the Android (You have to buy it directly from the site) and to my surprise when I try to play online it says you need to over wi-fi.

    I understand why they probably would do this as 3G is not the best for online gaming, however on my Palm Pre over 3G, it played just fine.

    So beware.

    Thanks for the head's up.

    Just based on how little support the developers have given Android gaming I'm ready to give Gameloft (and all future gaming developers) the finger and stick with my emulators 100% instead from now on :mad:

    Maybe they were afraid of too much lag in the games, but with 4G, this should alleviate the problem.

    I hope they change this.

    Are you sure you did not play it with wi-fi on at your house?
