    My transformer's not a week old... I can access Amazon.com OK, but if I hit "Sign in" or "Unlocked Cell Phones" (I can go the main cell phone page fine) I get "Loading..." for what seems forever, then finally the message "Data Connectivity problem - The Web page contains an error." The page itself says "Webpage not available" WiFi connection is fine, this has happened multiple days in a row.

    I'm using default browser, I cleared cache & have pop blocker disabled. Dolphin is getting same result.

    I'm frustrated by this thing already, I like to shop on Amazon a lot and then I figured out the WSJ App is only functional on a Galaxy (or something like that.) This device is not working out like I thought.

    Does anyone get different results on Amazon?

    This is similar to results on two Kindle Fires (which were returned.) Neither could load the Amazon Store on my home WiFi though it worked fine at a McDonalds. A dozen other devices work fine on home WiFi, but I think Android doesn't like something about it??? Any ideas?

    Have you tried using other browsers? Opera? Dolphin? Opera seems to ALWAYS work when the built in one fails.

    Let us know!

    Opera did get me a liitle further on the Amazon signin but ultimately failed too. I just went to a public WiFi, and everything works great.

    It appears there's something about my WiFi that Android doesn't like since both kindle fire and this transformer act similar on it. (Though another dozen devices work fine on it.) I`ll move this issue to a different forum. Thanks

    Opera Mobile - no help. Opera Mini - that's the ticket.

    The issue is related to Https (secure) pages and Opera Mini deals with them in a different way than the other browsers. This is just a work around, Android has an unaddressed issue in my opinion.
