    I have a Milestone X similar to Droid x. it is rooted and running 2.2.2. Suddenly, when i am on my mobile network and I open my browser I get an error message #403. Has anyone else had this? What do I need to do to fix it? Thanks for any input.

    You sure it's 403? Not 404? 404 means that the page can not be found. Did you try googling the entire message? Often this will provide a wealth of information


    Here's what I just found, perhaps it can help.....

    I am sure it is a 403, it will not allow me to use Dolphin or the stock browser. But I can use Overskreen Browser or Scope browser just fine. I don't understand that either. Everything works on wifi. It is just when I am on my mobile network. I did google the issue but most of the results pertain to this problem on a P.C. Thanks for the input.

    Well I have spoken to my service providers two times and they say the issue is on their end. But it seems strange that my wife has the same phone and is not having an trouble. Should I try a factory data reset or wait until the provider has their end clear?

    Well, the 403 error must have been on their end because it seems to have fixed it self.
