device does not auto load images/thumbnails in play store & other apps on 3G
Over the last few days, my galaxy nexus & nexus s have been acting up. Images/thumbnails in the play store app, g+ widget, fb widget, etc aren't auto loading. My 3G is enabled and working. I'm able to browse, buy & download apps. But its painful to browse without the images. And similarly, the pics/posts from the fb & g+ widget don't load up. Leaving just the widget like a blank tile except for the branding. If I enable wifi everything works fine. I've tried to post the screenshots here but I dunno if they've been uploaded properly.
I've checked with my network provider (Vodafone) and verified that there's no problem at their end. My 3G speeds and data transfer are working perfectly. I'm running stock jellybean on both my nexus devices. My content filtering is off. All sync settings are on.
This has been driving me nuts. I'll be grateful to anyone who could help me out.

Try clearing the cache of the play store app and see if that'll load up the images.
@Kubent, I am from Cape Town, Yesterday I upgraded to ICS via accesing About>Software>Upgrade
it worked great, my phone was linked to wifi and everything worked. Last night wile at home and paging through my app, none of the pictures loaded. I found this site, and tried Fritsa.Viljoens solution this morning.
My service provider is Vodacom. This is what I did and it worked.
