Why the fack would they do that, it only costs customers, that's all what those companies care about..

Just had a total outage on 3 in my area (in UK), after which Cydia works fine on iPhone 4 and iPad (different SIMs, BTW). Almost certainly a decision by the filtering company that didn't match 3's desires for their 'adult' block and so has now been undone.

I can confirm that. Tried on 3 different iPhones on Thursday and cydia didn't work. But, I called three support and ask them to remove any restrictions on my 3 number and they did :-) so, I'm ok again. I can even access some other websites which I wasn't allowed to visit before :-)

This is bad news wow

You can call 3 UK on 333 from your mobile and ask them to remove the adult content filter which they should do at no charge. I was told they were having a problem with the filter provided by the Internet Watch Foundation by a member of 3 staff.

I can now confirm that I can access Cydia on 3G after calling 3 as above. They seem to have also added 2GB to my all-you-can-eat data plan too :) Thanks to @prenvo for letting me know about this

3 is working fine on my iPad in England. Just checked both over 3G

This looks like a coincidence to me, not a block. I could be wrong of course.

Are we 100% positive it doesn't just have something to do with the almost non-existent cell service while the screenshot was being taken?
Frank - February 13, 2011 at 2:32pm
yes, 3 is now claiming it is a mistake and will be reversed as soon as possible.
Wiz - February 13, 2011 at 2:34pm
Great news - thanks for that response. No surprise coming from China, but the other two countries was a bit of a scare.

yeah, you've got a good point, 1 bar = no data too.
