Can't access AndroidForumns from Vibrant

    I can access AdroidForums and Phandroid from my computers, but I keep getting a server error when I try to access either from my Vibrant. I cleared the cache and history, but I still have the same problem. This has been happening for a few days now. Any Ideas of what I might have done to make this happen or what I need to do to fix it?

    1 Week with my Vibrant and I am loving it (Except for that whole GPS thing).

    Thanks

    What browser are you using? Mine works well with Opera Mini and stock browser.

    I am using the stock browser. I can access any other site I try and these two were working with no issue until 2 or 3 days ago.

    The error I get is:
    Data Connectivity problem
    The server failed to communicate. Try again later.

    Reboot yet? Sometimes that fixes that annoying connectivity problem.

    Pardon my ignorance, but I am new to andoid and the vibrant. By reboot, do you mean power off then back on? If so, then yes I have rebooted several times. I also have uninstalled a couple of apps I download in the last few days.

    Lol, I thought it was just me.. I've got the same problem, worked up until around Friday and now I get the same error as you everytime I try to connect. Using the stock browser as well.

    By the way I've flashed the stock rom several times over the weekend so a reboot isnn't going to fix the issue sadly. :(

    Could anyone that is also having a problem accessing the forums from their Vibrant do me a favor and see what happens when you use wifi?

    I've tested on both my Vibrant as well as my wife's and neither of us can access the forum from the stock browser using 3g. If we switch to wifi we have no issues. If I try to access it from a location roughly an hour away from where I live, suddenly 3g works.

    I'm wondering if others have the same results and if a mod or someone could check and see if perhaps some Tmobile IP's are banned or something.

    Thanks.

    You might try to clear the cache and cookies that worked for me on a different site.

    Hey I have this same problem. I can get the sites on my home wifi everytime but over 3g sometimes yes sometimes no. I have a rooted phone and am wondering if this could be the cause. Does everyone here have a rooted phone?

    I can access the forum on my phone, but I experience some problems like typing lag, and some functions dont work.

    The only issue with any sites I've had (I use SkyFire) is that the text cursor (Generally a | on most sites) can be hard to see, and sometimes username/password types of fields won't show text.


    I've posted a few things on these forums from both the Behold II and the Vibrant....

    Just a note: Historically, Androidforums.com HAS gone down at seemingly random times from anywhere between a few minutes and a few hours.


    (When Eugene/BH_Man was releasing his Behold II ROMs regularly, it was almost a given that I'd have to wait a day or two to get them due to site outtages)

    Yup. That's happened a few times.

    Some of my "gems of wisdom" are now lost forever.


    (Ok, so it was really just me answering simple things on the Behold II forums...)
