facebook access restricted (bad ip) – orange issue

Today i got many visits and comments on the previous post Facebook Error: Access restricted (Bad IP) however when i created the post it was because of different reason but maybe there is some new bug with Orange mobile which is causing many users trouble while accessing their facebook accounts from iPhone or other cell phones.

The error says:

You are trying to access Facebook from an IP (Internet Protocol) address that has been associated with abusive behavior. You may request to have this block lifted from Facebook by contacting us below.

This is definitely a IP address issue of some sort. As this issue is being faced suddenly by many orange users (iPhone and non-iPhone ones) it shows there is some recent issue between orange mobile and facebook.

One of the visitors informed that when they tried contacting the customer service for this issue they had response by a tape. He said:

ive just rang orange also and there is a voice message that says that they are having a problem with facebook login and they are working on fixing the problem stil

Hopefully this issue will be solved withing couple of hours! and it should be ofcourse!

This Pam’s comment worked for most users:

Had the same problem since last Fri. Finally managed to fix it by going into ‘browser settings’ on my orange phone, ‘profile settings’, ‘GPRS WAP’ then scroll down and ‘disable proxy’….all sorted now!!

    why has my facebook account on my phone got access restricted (bad ip) and I can not log on wheh on the computer the same account is running smoothly. I need this restriction removed from my account on my phone so I can continue to enjoy facebook. Please advise when this has been sorted.

    • Nabeel

      use facebook app for iPhone (or your phone) or use any other mobile browser to fix it

      also removing the proxy settings will work

  4. Trish

    I’ve been having bad ip message too thro orange, however when I log on via opera on my mobile, no problem so maybe people can try that instead.

    • Nabeel

      yeah, using alternate browser will fix it

  5. JADE

    This happened to me, I was trying to figure out what was wrong for awhile. I just turned the ‘Proxy Settings’ Off and then it worked for me. :)

    • Nabeel

  8. Donna

    I have had the same problem since Sat (18 Sep).
    I am using an old mobile and I am unable to see the text you are required to submit for the security questions – it is continually loading…. and therefore can not request to have my block removed.
    I am also with Orange and getting really annoyed after 3 days!

      internet-setting-browser profiles-click options-edit-& untick proxy

  18. john

    its not even working on opera for me :( ive got 2 browsers and an app and nothing

  19. nicola

    i have just tried turning my proxy settings of from orange uk wap to orange uk internet & my facebook worked.
    i then tried putting it back on orange uk wap & now it doesnt work again
    so my setting needs to be set at orange uk internet.
    this was sorted out from reading other peoples comments
    thankyou :):):)
    my phone was doing my head in i thought someone had been on my facebook account lol

  20. john

    on my phone i dont have the option to change proxy. i read somewhere that fb has banned a few ip’s and every time u turn your phone off and on you have a different ip. so if u take your sim out for 3 mins and turn your phone on it should work with a different ip. apparently it could take up to 20 times. ive done 3 times and hasnt worked yet

  21. SamSam

  26. Alison

    Hi everyone, I’ve got a samsung and I’ve managed to get it working by changing from GPRS to just Orange Internet in the profile settings.. does anyone know if Orange charge more for this as I have unlimited Internet or will it still be included in that bundle? Thanks, hope you all get it working soon!!

  27. Sarah Taylor

    I’m also having this problem.. I tried to turn off my proxy – that didnt work. I changed to Orange Internet rather than gprs – that didnt work. Now I cant even get onto any websites because its saying that “there is something wrong with the page you tried to access. choose another link”. Now what do I do?!

  28. Benson
