Continual "Network error" messages which makes the app unusable. I've checked my time and date settings, region is correct. I've deleted and reinstalled the app and power cycled my phone. Help please!

Are you using wifi or cellular? Is there a firewall between your device and the internet? It sounds like something is blocking your app from connecting to the IMDb servers. I would suggest trying a different network connection to see if the problem goes away.

I'm using cell, so there's no firewall.  What's interesting is I have two iPhones (one is my work phone), both are the same model and the same provider and same iOS version.  My work phone connects to the IMDB app just fine but my personal one does not.

same thing here... I have been using the IMDB app for a long time and since the last couple of days for some reason  is not able to connect to the network. When I try to make a search i get the message: 'We couldn't connect to IMD now. Please try again' Can anyone tell us if there is any way to sort this out? Thanks!
