    not sure what the problem is, but I can't connect the Gmail...sort of

    I can use the Mail app or Mailbox app just fine.

    Using the Gmail app gives me a network request timed out; using Safari says the server can't be found time out.

    Just wondering if anybody has had similar issue and what fixed it

    Hi, I my on gmail 24/7 with unlimited Att iphone, ipad. No problem at all.

    Probably Gmail blocks your ip. It is also can be a problem with Att routing.
    Contact Att first, ask them to reset you line. If it doesn't help contact Gmail support.

    I hope it helps.

    I called ATT and asked them to do so. Since Mail was working, they couldn't (wouldn't) do anything for me.

    After I got off, I realized I forgot the first rule of intelligent tech support. I turned it off and back on again. Problem solved.

    There was a big problem with Level 3 June 12, My both VZW FIOS and Att work so bad, internet speed was close to 0. Next day FIOS worked fast, but Att was slow as hell. Only reboot helped me. May be you have the same problem.
    I'm glad everything is resolved. Att BTW should start with reboot option.
