Default Fix: apps not working on 3G, but work fine on WiFi

This helped a couple of people on a Dutch forum, don't know if it's provider or country-related and if there even are users here that have these issues, but still wanted to let you know:

I have just fixed why some apps work only with WiFi but not on 3G. ICS apparently automatically added Proxy-settings to your APN, in my case Vodafone (NL). This is not necesarry to even make use of mobile internet, and it also prevents some apps from accessing the internet. I removed the Proxy-settings et voila, it works perfectly again!

Fix: Settings -> Press 'Mobile Network' (not Off-On!) -> Names accespoints -> Click your provider -> Remove 'Proxy' and 'Port'


Apps not working on 3G:
- Soccer Live Scores (developer mailed me this solution)
- Rabo Bankieren (dutch app)
- OV Chipkaart Checker (dutch app)

Solved a long standing problem for me - Reset Proxy and Port, and Apps working perfectly when no wifi.
Many thanks

Would you believe it, I've been having problems with an app that previously had worked fine on 3G, but had now stopped.

Chanced upon this thread, Deleted the proxy/port lines and it's working again.
