Help. I Cant Use The Forums On My Cell Phone. I Get Error #2000

13 posts in this topic

Im on a Sprint cell phone (Android ICS) and when i try to use the forums i get this message no matter what browser i use:

[#2000] You are not allowed to visit this community.

I am not able to log in or anything. It takes me straight to that error and its highlighted in red.

What can i do?

Im currently on pc which i have no problems with. I also use my android tablet over wifi with no problems.

I am able to browse the forums on my cell if i use a proxy site.. so i assume the issue has to do with the IP on my Sprint Cell phone.

The Admins periodically sweep the forums and will sometimes provide an answer if they can. My advice would be to be patient as it can be a few weeks. If you would like a more immediate response, I would recommend to email them or call. Here is a link to the email form:

adamatx, what is your location and service provider? I had this problem while I was abroad. I called the telecommunications company, and they couldn't make head or tails of it (I'm guessing they don't use Rotoworld much in Asia :lol:).

Austin Texas. I use Sprint service. The funny thing is that it used to work up untill like a year ago. Havent had problems going to any forums or websites aside from rotoworld.

The only scenarios I can think of are your IP address is blocked or your provider has blocked this website; the latter is implausible.

A few more questions:

1. Are you using a public connection via Wi-Fi? Examples being a college/university or your workplace?

2. You mentioned you are able to browse using Wi-Fi with other devices. Is the IP address the same?

I get that message sometimes using my cellphone as well. Not consistently but everyone once in a while I have that issue pop up. Usually when using 3G.

1. I am using Sprint service when this error comes up.

2. I am able to use rotoworld fully when im on any wifi using any device i own. (Cell phone or Tablet.. both Android)

I am typing this on PC.

Cell phone using SPRINT service: I can go to rotoworld.com and browse the website. But when i click the FORUMS tab... It gives me the error. (i turned off wifi just in case)

Cell phone using university WIFI: I am able to browse site and forums with no problems. (I turned off mobile data while just in case)

I just tried the above about 5 min ago using 2 different web browsers on android. Both browsers gave exact same results (opera mobile and dolphin browser)

Thank you for your time/help.. I really appreciate it.

Alright, I'll forward this issue to the admins. For now, whenever you use your phone to access the forums, it looks like Wi-Fi is your best bet.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

This exact same issue happened to me this past week when I had no power and had to rely on my Sprint 3G for internet. Fix it!

Yes, this always prevents me from accessing the forums when I go through 3G. I think it's an IP.Board thing though

I havent heard anything from the admins.

Honestly, i have lost interest in the forums because of this. I have no internet at home, only at work. I used to kill time on the forums but since it doesnt work on the phones i hardly use it even at work.
