3 network bloks most sites/links?

New to 3 network. Unless I use the native browser, I can't seem to open any websites, and even then, it seems to work only with the built in browser. I tried to load opera mini, and it won't open the link. In fact, it won't really open any links that aren't part of 3.

Any websites? Do you mean all websites? Or do some websites work?

I can get to google, for example, but any websites that contain links, or require input, won't function. So, if I search for something, and then try to go to that link, it doesn't work.I have checked my phone settings to be sure there is nothing blocking access. If I click on any - any - link in a website, it says cannot access or cannot open link. Similarly, if I try to access email, and I enter a user name and password, and then click "submit" or "enter" it says cannot open. For opera, I can get to the page, but when I click on "doanload" to get the mini browser, it says cannot open link.

Very weird, is it a phone provided by three? See if the apn settings match what three have on the website. Might be worth ringing customer services to see what they say.

Here in Ireland Three use a p*rn filter that can be a bit prude... sites that are most definitely not p*rn can now and again be blocked - dito some "alternative news" sites such as blacklistednews r informationliberation. But other than that? I have a 3 SIM in my better half's HTC HD2, and Opera Mobile and Opera mini work without any restrictions - the SIM is not registered to any name, nor age-verified. But I don't know - do 3 UK require age verification?

What phone do you use? What APN (access point name) is set in "networks" (or "connections"/"mobile data" depending on your phone model)????

Thank you all for your prompt replies. I can assure you the sites are most definitely "safe"! It is a Nokia 2730, admittedly an older phone, but only just just purchased, and yes at 3. I can't understand how I can access sites through the 3 browser and the native newsfeeds etc. but trying to access any other links creates a problem. I see the "G Square" icon, so I know I am receiving data, but as stated, clicking links produces an error. Can you please point me to the access point settings on the 3 site? I am using whatever was the default when I started the phone and inserted the SIM provided by 3. Some Nokia phones have a settings wizard, but it does not seem like that's the case on the 2730.

Pay and go or contract?

That the email doesn't work suggests settings rather than filter problems

Oops... Copy and paste link ;)
2730 is S40 - so to change apn, go to settings, connections/destinations... Find apn and edit. Note: you may have to kill the active connection before you can edit it.

Pay and go.

Thanks all! Will test.

And if all these settings are already the same and hence still doesn't work, then take it back and hit them with it.
