I’m an internet junkee. I admit it. That’s the first step, right? Anyway – today I’ve been missing my ability to access google from my cell phone. It’s weird that I am still able to get my email through the exchange server, but I can’t access any google web pages, including gmail, google.com, and their news.
I couldn’t find much information about this online. I for sure wasn’t able to find anything from my cell phone as I don’t think any search engines are as minty fresh as google when it comes to this kind of news. I tried looking on bing, but I couldn’t access bing from my phone either. I am able to access every other website I’ve tried, including Yahoo. So – yahoo was my search engine of choice today. Their mobile interface needs some improvements.
At first I thought my problem was maybe due to the custom ROM I’m using on my phone. I recently found a way to boot into Android on my phone, so I tried that and had the same problems. I know that Android has nothing to do with my custom ROM, so I figured it was some sort of Sprint issue combined with Google (and possibly Bing?). I figured it was possible it could have to do with a bad radio on my phone but I don’t think that would explain why I only have problems with the two sites and yet everything else works fine.
Now that I’m home, I’ve been able to do some real searches to see if I can find any news. I don’t know when my problems really started as I didn’t notice them until this morning. There was a thread started yesterday reporting problems accessing Google Apps. While it doesn’t seem like there is any explanation or solution, it was at least comforting to know that I’m not alone with my problem.
I’ll be really curious if I ever hear what is going on. At this point, I don’t really care why it’s a problem – I just want my Google back!
