    I can load any webpage in Chrome, Firefox, Opera etc. except Reddit. The Reddit apps (official Reddit app, joey, Reddit is fun) don't load as well. Chrome reports 'DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN' and opera also reports DNS problems (Firefox simply says it can't load the webpage).

    I downloaded the 'dns changer app' and changed my DNS to Google dns, but Reddit only worked for a minute (only in browsers, not in the Reddit apps). Now it's not working (in anything) again. I have also cleared chrome's history and reinstalled Chrome. Reddit still doesn't work.

    P.S. I am using a 3g network, not a broadband connection.

    Could be Reddit is been censored and blocked by your carrier/ISP? What country are you in and who's your carrier. Have you tried using a VPN?

    I have the same questions as @mikedt. I use Chrome all the time for Reddit, without issue. No tinkering required. And although I don't like and don't use the Reddit app, I just fired it up and it's fine as well.

    I live in Bangladesh and my Carrier is Grameenphone. I don't think they'd block Reddit, I asked a friend to check on his broadband connection and on his mobile data (different carrier though) and he said that it worked.

    As for the VPN, I already said I downloaded the 'dns changer ' app and my phone's os identifies that as a VPN. Anyway, can you recommend any good free VPN's (if there are any)?

    Hey, thanks for the VPN, Reddit is working now! However, I still can't use Reddit on another phone that is connected to this phone's hotspot. Oh well.

    By the way, I don't think the government here censors anything. Once they turned off all networks (excluding broadband) during the elections, but that was it.
