    Default No data connection only on certain apps

    Let me start by saying that I am rooted but on stock rom.

    I'll try and explain the best I can.

    Yesterday I went to use Opera and noticed that it went to a white screen and never loaded Opera. Tried it about 5 times and the same thing nothing. Tried with wifi on and off. Used the stock browser and it works fine.

    So I scrolled through my screens and noticed that my Engadget widget shows "data not available". i deleted the widget and added it back, again same message.

    Went into settings and my Mobile Data is still checked. Data usage shows 45.95MB used so far. So I do not believe it hit a data limit and shut it off.

    I have no idea what to try. Any help would be appreciated.

    Same thing happens to me yesterday on both my HTC Raider (vivid) and my HTC flyer. The thing they have in common, other than brand, is that I use GO launcher EX, and there was a recent update. So I tried Engadget in HTC sense home screen, but it did't work there either. Very confused... Also unistalled and re-installed app but with no success.

    Try going into manage apps and clear data. Then reboot phone and try again.

    I've also experienced little glitches here and there when apps were trying to use data, but usually it's all good after restarting the app. I assume it's Sprint upgrading towers to network vision and these apps are set to use certain adresses to access the web and the upgrade is refreshing them. It might be though that the developer might need to upgrade thier app to take advantage of Sprints new vision upgrade.

    Welcome!

    Try this for the widget.......

    Put widget on home screen. Goto the engadget app and start it, let it load then exit out. If not, goto manage apps again and clear data for the Engadget app and restart phone. If not again, I couldn't tell ya but I hope it works.

    Since Engadget made changes to it's site, maybe they need to update thier app (and widget) to be used in it's full glory. That's my take on it....
