I love this site! In the UK Three for some reason blocks gmail, Google apps for business and iGoogle when using their 3g internet. Thanks, jefuchs, your solution worked.
Just to add one more thing for anyone googling for it: Three for some reason prevent you from accessing normal version of ebay - they redirect you to crazily crippled h3g.ebay.co.uk. That is easily circumvented by using Tor/Privoxy combination.
