    Hello, everyone here! I have been using Samsung Galaxy Grand for 2 years... I haven't experienced this problem until today. Today, as I attempted to open to YouTube, it didn't open and said 'There is a problem to network service. Please try again." also my Play Store and Google+, it said no connection as well. I have switched from Mobile Data to WiFi and other way around and they still said 'no connection'. I think there is a problem about Google Apps and account. My mobile data and wifi worked perfectly fine... My Google chrome and Gmail worked, but the other 3 I mentioned earlier didn't. Then I remove my account from my device and add it back again. As it was logging in, it said "Can't established a reliable connection to a server." It even said "This could a temporary problem, or your Android device may not be provisioned for data service." I've searched Google for solutions, but nothing has been solved. I have cleared the cache, data on Google Play Service, Play Store, Youtube, Google+. I have even rebooted, toggled airplane mode.. and I've also done the syncing on my account, and it said "Sync is experiencing a problem. It will be shortly." NOTHING STILL HASN'T BEEN SOLVED. My phone IS ROOTED. I don't want to do the factory reset...
    Can you help solving this problem, please? I would appreciate that. Thanks in advanced, and sorry for my English.

    One more thing, I can sign my account in on Google Chrome, but I can't do that on Google+ or setting...

    Is it because of my Google Account or mu Google App or because of my network connection?

    [SOLUTION:] Can't Establish a reliable connection to the server/Playstore No Connect

     CREDITS GOES TO: to crazzzzy (and many other users) (pandawill) for posting this solution.


    - Account sync OFF permanently with the message: "Sync is currently experiencing problems".
    - Signing in Google Apps fails showing message: "Can't establish a reliable connection to the server"

    Possible Cause:
    - system file named 'hosts' (/etc/hosts) points to a Google server that changed IP, thus blocking access to Apps.

    Possible Solution:
    edit 'hosts' file (/etc/hosts) deleting or commenting (adding a # at the beginning) the old line

    Please do it at your own risk.

    How to do it:

    METHOD 1

    1.- ROOT your device (of course)

    2.- Editing the file
    You will need a proper editor
    Download and Install Total Commander and open it

    3.- Browse with Total Commander to root/etc
    (hint: on the right side of the screen there's a shortcut to system folder.. look for etc/ and you will find it)
    Tap mount R/W
    Long tap on "hosts" > edit file > Totalcmd-Editor

    Open etc/hosts and edit the file. Just put # before android.clients.google.com.

    4.- SAVED

    Edited file should look like this: localhost
    # android.clients.google.com

    remember: based on my own observation it should be look like this: one space)localhost
    # one space)android.clients.google.com

    5.- Turn OFF your device.
    6.(Not Necessary, Go to Next Step. But if the problem persist do Factory Reset..) Got it on Recovery Mode, Factory Data Reset, wipe data.
    7. Reboot your device.
    8. Once the phone reboots, input your google account information when the phone asks for it.
    9.- Sync to your account and contacts

    METHOD 2:

    1. Make sure you have a ROOT ACCESS on your Device.
    2. Install Root Explorer, Run App, Grant SU Access.
    3. Browse root / etc... at the top of your screen you will see mount R/O and mount R/W...
    4.Tap mount R/W
    5.Look for host file, long press it and open with text editor.
    6. just Add # (pound sign) on the first number.
    like this:

    # one space)android.clients.google.com

    SAVE IT and Reboot.
    Now you can connect to Google Play very well.

    UPDATE: 08/22/13

    If above method fail to connect you properly or have some issue on wireless connection, revert the host file to its original state
    and install this app on playstore:

    run app and choose your prefer edit.

    Another Way Playstore not working after Installing/Uninstalling Freedom App?

    - Go to Root Explorer and Mount R/W then delete Hosts file under system/etc/
    - Reboot
    - Shutdown & Boot to Recovery
    - Wipe Cache/Dalvik Cache
    - Reboot
    - Presto! back to normal.

    Removed Attached Files you may download it on Google Playstore. 

    Total Commander: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...TotalCommander

    Root Explorer: https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...e.rootexplorer

    Note: You may use your favorite File Manager as long as it can browse up to the root of your Phone..

    Download Other File Managers:
    Root Browser: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1338582 (Credits to the Devs)
    ES Explorer: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2210417 (Credits to the Devs)

    Note: If ABOVE method doesn't work for you... reflash rom would be your final choice!

    MemberThanks: 2

     Same Error
    Even i have android.clients.google.com mtalk.google.com ip, so did u change this ip to 74. or did u add the new ip below the local host portion???

    ---------- Post added at 03:58 PM ---------- Previous post was at 03:43 PM ----------

    Ok Thanks a lot it really worked now, now this might help for some one if u have the same error as i got. No ip present below local host ( android.clients.google.com mtalk.google.com ip present ). so just copy this (# android.clients.google.com) below localhost , and that worked for me....

     Thank You!
    Thank you for the info, it worked on my Chines tablet as it stopped working all of a sudden.
    I had a feeling that it was something like this, just had no clue how to go about it... and why the hell are they using hard-coded IP addresses anyway???

    BTW, just fixing the HOST file and rebooting fixed it for me.

    Thanks problem solved
    Hi I was frustrated for some time over this issue, following your instructions (ES file explorer and editor) solved the problem.
    Only corrected the file without factory reset than added one of my accounts.
    Thanks again.

    Try booting into 'Safe Mode' and see if you're still having a problem with your online connectivity. If it is OK in Safe Mode than can you think of anything you might have installed since yesterday before you started to have problems?
    Another thing to try is clear the system cache partition. It won't affect your data or your apps but it sometimes clears up odd things going on that aren't related to individual app problems.
