Using Internet Banking via Wireless is not recommended.Facebook may come into that category as well if you are exchanging personal information.It is probably a security issue which can be resolved by you speaking to T-Mobile.

I cannot access facebook on my computer I can get everything else on the internet but facebook , can you help me


Hi Garry,

More often than not, Facebook disables an account because of some violation of the site's rules, namely the Statement of Rights and Responsibilities. Most people don't bother to read this legal - if more folks did, there'd be fewer disabled accounts.
However, mistakes do happen, but the social network's staff will own up to an error if pointed out as such. Of course, Facebook users love to complain about these instances, but compared to how many other technology companies handle glitches - well, we're not complaining.
Certainly, whenever you're the one with the blocked account, feelings of frustration can make it seem like the site is out to get you. Please know that's not so. Try this and see if you can contact them... https://www.facebook.com/help/105487009541643

How to Block Illegal Sites


Click on the "Start" menu. Click on the "Control Panel" icon and double click the "Internet Options" icon. This will open up the Internet Options screen and allow you to restrict access to illegal sites.
Click on the "Security" tab located at the top of the Internet Options screen. Click on the "Restricted Sites" icon, located below "Select a zone to view or change security settings." Click on the "Sites" button. This will open the restricted sites list.

Enter the address of the illegal site that you wish to block in the dialog box under "Add this website to the zone" and click the "Add" button. This will put that address on the restricted list and block it from loading in the future.
To remove a site that was added to the restricted list in error, choose the site from the list, located under "Websites." Click the "Remove" button. The site will no longer be blocked.
Click the "Close" button when you have added all the illegal sites you wish to block. Click the "OK" button to save your changes.

When I try to access facebook.com I keep getting "page cannot be displayed , what is the problem here ?


Facebook uses https as its protocol once you have logged in. If other websites (such as Google, Yahoo, Amazon, etc.) work but websites such as Facebook, online banking, and others do not, then it seems that there is a problem with the security settings of the web browser since it would appear that the problems are only with websites that use secure HTTP (which is what the https protocol provides). Presuming that you are using Internet Explorer (as I have found it to be the most commonly used browser when this problem occurs), what you need to do is reset your security options back to defaults. You accomplish this by going to the Internet Options control panel applet or go to Tools'Internet Options from the pull-down menus within Internet Explorer and then click on the Security tab. You will find four icons at the top of the window for that tab: Internet, Local Intranet, Trusted Sites, and Restricted Sites. Click on each in turn and make sure that each has the Default Level button greyed out. If the Default Level button lights up for one of the options, click on it to reset its settings. After this, click on the Advanced tab and then click on the button toward the bottom that is labelled "Restore Advanced Settings." After this, click OK and close all windows of Internet Explorer that you currently have open. Wait about 30 seconds (to insure that all active Internet Explorer processes close out of memory) and then open Internet Explorer again and try to go to Facebook. If all goes well, you should now be able to get in.

I hope this helps. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Block website


There can be any number of reasons for you to want to block a particular website.
It might be a known malicious site or a website with pages containing inappropriate material.
Whatever the reason, you can block a website (or group of websites) with just a few mouse clicks using the built in functions of your browser.
Some browsers, however, such as Internet Explorer and Google Chrome, have built-in features to do just that, while others, such as Mozilla Firefox, require an additional tool.

Start the browser and click the "Tools" menu option.
Select "Internet Options," click the "Privacy" tab then "Sites."

Type the website URL in the "Address of website" box and click "Block" in the "Per Site Privacy Actions" window.
Click "OK" and then "OK" again to save the new settings.

Google Chrome

Start the browser and click the wrench icon in the top right corner of the window.

Select "Tools" and click "Under the Hood."
Select "Change Proxy Settings," click "Security" tab and double-click the "Restricted Sites" icon.
Click "Sites," type in the website URL and click "Add."
Close all windows.

Discreetly Block a Website
If you find a friend, co-worker or your child has visited websites that cause problems on your computer, such as pop-up ads, viruses or just slowing down your computer, you will want to block those sites so they can't be accessed.
Browsers come equipped with privacy or security settings that allow you to block websites, but they don't always work well and are easy to undo.
Instead, find your computer's Host file and add the offending websites to that file.
Those sites will be blocked and, if you make the file password inaccessible, others who use your computer won't be able to undo the changes you have made.

Click "Start" in the lower left-hand corner of your computer screen, or click on the Windows emblem.
Choose "All Programs," "Accessories," then "Command Prompt."
A screen will appear.
Type "notepad C:/Windows/System32/drivers/etc/hosts" where the cursor is located, without the quotation marks.
Don't move the cursor first, just start typing.
The Host file will open in a Notepad screen.


Look for the line that says: "127.0.0.1 localhost," without the quotation marks. Under that line, enter the IP address and the name of the website you wish to block, separated by at least one space. If you wish to block more than one website, list each on an individual line.
For instance, if you wanted to block Facebook, you would type on a single line:
69.63.184.142 www.facebook.com


Save the file after you have added all the websites you wish to block.
After saving it, close the file and close the command prompt screen.

Locating IP Addresses

Use the Ping command to find out the IP address of a website. On the lower left-hand corner of your screen, click on "Start." Choose "All Programs." Select "Accessories." Choose "Command Prompt."


Type "ping www.food.com" without the quotation marks.
Press the "Enter" key. A list of IP addresses will appear for that website.
High-traffic websites such as Facebook will often have a range of IP addresses.
Copy and paste the IP addresses to a separate page, such as Notepad, and save them.


Go back to the command prompt and type in the command described above for locating the Host file.
Enter each IP address and the name of the website on a separate line.
If you have six IP addresses for one site, for instance, you'll have a different IP address but the same website URL on each line.

How can I delete FaceBook off my PC?????


Facebook does not live on your computer's hardrive in the way that Microsoft Office or Excel does. Facebook lives in the internet cloud and you access the site through a web browser. For this reason, you cannot delete it from your PC. If you are interested in not allowing anyone to visit Facebook from your computer, there are different ways to block accessing it. You can search for the different ways, either use a blocked host list or specifying Facebook as a blocked site within your browser(s).

How to unlock blocked site in school?


Get a letter from your parents, justifying why you need to access "time-wasting" sites (YouTube, FaceBook) using school-computers, during school hours, and give the letter to the school's principal.

Or, buy a "wireless Internet stick" -- for about $40/month, you connect this stick into any USB port, and, if there is cell-phone coverage within range of the computer, you have unblocked Internet access.

I am having a problem logging in to my online banking i am getting a time out dislpay i have talked with sov.bank and they say because this is a new explorer site they do not except it and i should go...


Personally, Internet explorer just doesn't cut it for a lot of my websites. I've actually had the same exact problem. I've all but completely switched to Firefox web browser. It's backwards compatible with almost every site I've ever visited and I've noticed many fewer crashes.

Try firefox at www.firefox.com and see if that works better for you. The best thing about this browser is, the site I visit that must be viewed with internet explorer are viewable. They have a downloadable add-on that lets you run internet explorer in a firefox tab. :)

I hope this helps out, but other then my idea there isn't much you're going to be able to do. If their banking tools won't allow IE8, then you've gotta bite the bullet and use something else.
