Gambling site access on 4G only works through VPN. Parental Control is OFF.

I have just moved to Virgin from O2 and now I cannot access any gambling sites over 3/4G unless I use a VPN. Over WiFi it works fine. Parental Control is OFF as it was changed/checked on two occasions by VM support.

I get a range of errors from the sites such as:

"An SSL Error has occurred and a secure connection to the server cannot be made"

"Error accessing site, Request Denied, Your client address is unknown"

"Safari cannot open the page because it could not establish a secure connection to the server"

You will need to go into your online account, turn off parental controls and then reboot your phone

Parental Control is already off and the phone has been rebooted multiple times.

Thanks for the advice but I got this sorted a few months ago.

A new SIM and someone at Virgin Media making the correct setting to ensure my Parental Control actually worked did the trick.
