    short story: sometimes when i turn data on and then try to surf immediately, it doesn't work.

    long story: i've had my 520 for about 6 months now, and when i first got it, i could turn data on, go to ie, and surf right away. lately, for the last few weeks, sometimes i get 403 forbidden errors because the internet access isn't enabled yet. so i'll sit there closing and re-opening ie, and it might take several minutes before internet connectivity is established. sometimes i turn data off and on several times. eventually internet works.

    anybody have a similar problem?

    What OS are you running on your 520?

    That will be your service provider. Just yesterday had a similar problem in that Tethering with our unlimited data plan, came up with a message, "Tethering is not allowed on this device, call your provider."

    Did that and was told they are having problems with the local data transmissions. By about 7:30pm last night it was back to tethering OK.

    They were probably letting the NSA insert some tracking software. :D

    i've got black on there. maybe it is the service provider, since this delay doesn't occur every single time.
