    iPhone Users and Banned IPs

    I have had this happen on many occasions where my iPhone picks up a banned IP.

    Here are the trouble shooting steps.

    Go to "settings"
    - "General"
    - "reset"
    - "reset network"

    This should clear the phone and pick up a new IP

    If that doesn't work:
    Go to "settings"
    - turn "Airplane mode" on
    - turn off phone
    - turn on phone
    - turn "Airplane mode" off

    This should select a new IP.

    If that doesn't work, Verizon users can...

    Dial - *228
    At the voice prompt, select option 1

    That should select a new IP.

    If none of those work, I don't know what to tell you, but they worked for me.

    A big thanks to the Admins that keep all this going. These steps can help to make their job easier because you can figure out the problem BEFORE contacting them. I found all this out while working with Admins and my phone carriers customer service.

    Same thing for the Droid 3. Airplane mode on/off or just turning the phone on/off, both should reset your IP. No reason to panic and call Norm or Brandon at 3am anymore.

    Unfortunately, all the simple phone setting steps dot fix my issue. FINALLY got ahold of someone at Verizon who knew what they were doing. I called the *228 and that took care of it. It's not always easy. Again, thanks to the admins for being understanding while trying to get it figured out. The only reason I contacted them was because for me, the troubleshooting wasn't working. I can voice my appreciation enough, especially with all the other things going on with the site. Thanks guys, if we ever meet again I'll buy you a beer or coffee or something. tip hat smiley

    This is incredibly useful. I was locked out all day today. Power cycling and airplane mode didn't fix it.

    *228 has saved me from going into withdrawals twice over the last 2 days now. The airplane mode & power cycling wasn't working anymore. It seems it (*228) only works when I clean out my phones cookies and other browser history first though.

    I getting the banned ip address message almost every time now. It's getting to the point where this site is almost unusable for me unless I'm on the home computer.

    Have you just reset using airplane mode or have you gone through all these steps? I get banned IPs when I go to a new area, but once I go back to where I had already been, there is no issue.

    Try going through all the steps to clear everything. I fear that there may be some remaining data on your device that is telling it to reconnect to an old IP. I was resetting my phone and such, but upon tlaking with Verizon techies, they told me that my phone had been reconnecting to the same IP out of convenience. I had to go through everything from top to bottom to get it to work.
