    I'm trying to get on the iPhone fourms but it keeps timing out. Error in connection. Not sure what's going on. Is iPad and iPhone fourms the same ?

    Www.iphoneforums.net is indeed our sister site, I just tried it and got straight on to the site.

    I sometimes find both sites timing out if I refresh a page and pick up (or drop) a wifi connection. It seems if you start the process on 3G you have to finish it on 3G. Usually killing the app (or Safari) in the multitask bar sorts the problem out.

    Occasionally, it doesn't. In a case like this I refresh Mail to force an Internet connection, and that usually does the trick.

    Seems like I get that connection timed out but still let me see the threads now. And I double click for the task bar and use forum that way no problem. Don't know if that's the trick or not but seems to work I guess.
    Thanks for the info everyone.
