If it's any help my phone somehow turned off its 'allow data connection'yesterday. Check your settings.

Re: restricted access changed. Data service is blocked

Thanks For reply. It seems to have stopped doing it now. I switched it off and removed and replaced sim and sd card after reading a few similar problems people have had, not sure if an update caused it.
I did notice the error never showed up during the night at work and on data, but as soon as I was back in the house on WiFi it came back.

Re: restricted access changed. Data service is blocked

Hi all,

Its started again exactly the same message "Restricted access changed. Data service is blocked"

I've lost count of the times i'ts done it today, becoming a pain.

Anyone have any ideas please?

Just one extra thing to add its happening when I'm on my home wifi.

Re: restricted access changed. Data service is blocked

I have been receiving the very same message too, mine started on the night of a music concert at a venue nearby, and I assumed that the local mast couldn't cope with the number of people at once, and it did stop shortly after the event ended.

However when in the city yesterday I saw the yellow triangle with exclamation mark with this message again, albeit it wasn't showing for long but still annoying.

I created my own thread on this as I hadn't noticed this one until now, so perhaps a moderator will merge the two together.

Strange how it's affecting two different models of Sony Xperia smartphones.

Funny how nobody from Virgin Media have said anything about it, neither have they said anything on my own thread either!

Re: restricted access changed. Data service is blocked

I disconnected my phone from my home Wifi and I don't get the message, but as soon as I turn wifi back on I get it straight away. So question for a Virginmedia Mod could this be a Virginmedia network problem? Phone is on Virgin Mobile and wifi is Virginmedia.

Couldn't replicate that, disconnected from Wifi then connected with no error message.

Re: restricted access changed. Data service is blocked

Might be an idea to unsolve this if that is indeed possible, especially as you are receiving the issue once again.
