Restart your device, that should fix the problem. If on the slim chance it doesn't, re-install the game. You'll lose everything but it should fix the problem.

Did you ever get this situated by uploading your progress of the game to cloud before deleting the game?

Ugh I have the same problem I don't know what to do!!

This has happened to me too and I'm not deleting my game either. This happened because of the last update. There must be another way to fix this.

If your phone is in the time cheat mode, it doesn't like it. Putting the phone back in auto worked for me when this happened. Now if I can just figure out why four of my SIMs decided that they din't have to work anymore..

Try checking your restrictions. Or restart your device. Or put the time on automatic sorry if that doesn't work. Xxx

The same thing happens to me.. My Internet is perfectly fine and my time is set to the right time. I've tried restarting my iPad, restarting the whole game, even reinstalling it. However I continue to recieve the server timed out message anytime I go to ake a purchase

Go to your date and time settings and change it to manual, make sure the zone and date/time is correct, then restart the game. It worked for us.

I had the same issue. I also did what everyone else suggested and they didn't work. So I checked my Facebook account and logged in... I was able to connect to the server immediately.

[b]How do you connect to the cloud to save your game to Game Center??? It keeps saying the server timed out when I try to buy money for my sims and I read that you should save your game, delete it and reinstall it. My sims are pretty broke and desperate at the moment so can you please tell me quick!!!

Go into settings, then go into general, and click restrictions. Then you have to put in your restrictions password. Then turn on in-app purchases. 😄
