does not work at all. I am connected via wifi.
I get the same error. I just purchased a T-Mobile Dash (HTC Excalibur) and installed GMM. I'm also using Wi-Fi. I haven't added the data plan yet, but I'm wondering if that will do it. I'm still looking around for a solution.
Mine shows it's "downloading ..." something when I open GMM and then gives the error after a short period of time. If I hit retry the count of downloaded kb continues to increase before timing out again. It goes very slowly. I let it get up to 24kb downloaded before I gave up.
Other connectivity seems fine (Internet Explorer, POP e-mail, Google Mail App, Opera Mini).
