Cannot visit friend's Springfields ... Cannot connect to server ...

I didn't delete anyone, however, ever since the update I can't access any friends either. I had about 50, not sure if that's alot or average or whatever, but a decent supply of cash and xp. As soon as I tap the bart/milhouse friend icon, I get the Bart disconnect scene that makes me want to put my iphone in a blender. And then set the blender on fire.

    Me and the mrs have the same problem. Sorry to all my friends for not being able to visit.
    Friends do seem to be able to visit me though.
    Come on EA sort this out

    What's the deal here EA? Fix the update please, it's pretty hard to keep up with the game if you can't visit your friends towns. Going thru withdrawals here!

    Same here. I have 30 friends and have not been able to visit anyone in the last 24 hours. Some friends are visiting me so it seems that some folks aren't having this issue.

    Same problem. :(

    Except things are getting even worse for me now. Yesterday I couldn't connect to friends. Today I can't even play my own Springfield for more than 10 seconds without getting booted with the same message and having to reconnect.

    I've got about 80 friends who I used to visit daily, but now since the update I haven't been able to visit any of them! I also get the "crash" message.. But I have had lots of friends visit me still :-(
    My game also crashes at least once every 5 mins, and ESP when I have collected everyone from the 60min kwik e mart!! I keep losing the XP and money! Driving me insane!!!! :-(
    Hope they fix it soon......

    I finally fixed my issue with visiting neighbors after 3 weeks. I removed about 10 neighbors that have not played in over a week and now I can visit everyone again. I did try this same thing last week, removed 3 or 4 but that did not help. Not sure exactly what fixed it this time but I am starting to think I had a neighbor that hacked their game and it was somehow screwing up my game. Of course this is just theory as I have no way to prove it.

    Yep same problem here, I try to go to my friends, it flashes quickly, shows just the Other Springfileld, no other friends are there, then goes to the cannot connect to server. I was able to visit yesterday. I did delete a couple of people, but what is more odd is when I tried to add people I got the uh oh message as if I had too many friends.

    I like the game, but the constant bugs are getting to be a serious drag, this update has not fixed anything and added a couple of more problems, ugh.

    This started happening to me now. I was able to visit my friends this morning with no problem. Now it keeps crashing whenever I try to visit them. I can still access my town though. I have noticed the game crashes more often. My game was updated a few days ago

    Did some testing, rebooted the iPad 3, no change. Logged out of my orgin account and logged back in. When I did that I could see friend list and that showed all my friends, all the invites, and that all friends had logged in today or one day ago. Then I went back to visit the other towns and same thing, takes me there, flashes for a second, long enough to see a level 1 Other Springfield and no other friends to speak of. So they are in orgin, but they Erie somehow not connecting on the care river or the cloud.

    **** is all I can say
