[xubuntu] Can only connect to Google sites with mobile phone

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hey. I'm on Ubuntu 12.10 (using xubuntu) and I'm trying to surf the web using my mobile phone. For some reason I can only connect to google.com and other google sites (gmail, youtube, etc.), but I get a timeout when I try to connect to any other site. I can ping any website just fine, I get the IP address and no package loss, etc. Just in case, I changed the DNS to Google's DNS, but that didn't change anything. I'm going online with an old HTC Diamond (Windows Mobile 6.3) and a prepaid plan (Simyo), if that's relevant. The connection works on Windows XP just fine. I found this thread, (Hardware)
