I'm having the same issues. The first time I tried signing on earlier it took 40 times to sign on. I had the 80710082 message. I'm using a wireless connection with Comcast. Finally I was able to sign on and it took longer than usual to load my friends list. I couldn't sync my trophies, check my profile on my screen name or compare trophies with my friends or check their profiles. I get error messages still. When I sign off, it takes forever to sign back on again. I'm really pissed about this. Luckily my 2nd model 80gb ps3 is still under warranty at Best Buy. The total amount on the receipt from Best Buy when I bought this ps3 would pretty much cover getting a 250gb ps3 assuming that I could find one in stock. Lately I've seen the Best Buy stores in my area with no ps3 systems in stock. Not looking forward to what Sony's announcement will be at E3 on June 15th about a possible charge for playing online.
everyone says this but NOONE pays attention. Sony has said 3,000 times that PLAYING ONLINE WILL ALWAYS BE FREE! NO matter if there is a subscription of some sort. It will be psn with extra stuff but ANYONE AND EVERYONE WILL ALWAYS BE ABLE TO PLAY ONLINE FOR FREEEE!!!!
