    If your in windows, navigate to hosts file and notepad, click hosts and drag into notepad and the last line, press return to goto new line and paste that and save.

    I guess it would be easier to ask: Are you on Windows or OSX?

    If Windows: What version?

    Copy the host file you your desktop to change it then copy it back to the original folder.

    Right click on the file and should be a security or something tab. Never used Vista so unsure of the lingo in the tabs. I went from XP to 7 last I used it.

    I'm coming from a iPhone 3G to iPhone 4, so should I start reading up on this stuff. Is it gonna be a similar situation as with the 3GS with having to add this host??
