Unable to Connect to Origin

[ Edited ]
★★★★ Novice

Everytime I try to play my sims games, i keep getting the "unable to connect to Origin" message. I have uninstalled origin and re installed it and it still hasnt worked. My sims 3 launchers update is i am not sure if that is the current update, but everytime i click Game Updates its says its the current update. ( just making sure incase that is the problem


Can someone help ?? this is annoying...


I posted this September 2nd/2014..

Today is September 11,2014.


I still have no resolved the issue with this cause I cannot figure out what is going on.... I am a huge fan of SIMS. I have 489 hours put in.. and thats not even included what i have played from when i first started playing it. It'd probably be close to 1000 hours. I am addicted.


I would like to be able to play this again... I am so dissappointed that I cannot figure this out.

I am having a similar issue. I keep getting a message saying the online login is unavailable- I'm thinking it has more to do with the Origin servers than with my machine.  What doesn't make sense is I have a sibling who's been logged into Origin and online for the past 24 hours with no problem.

I noticed one of the message posts at the top said something about How To fix Origin connection issues. I will try that and hopefully I can let you know that it worked.


UPDATE: The post I mentioned worked for me, I hope it works for you and you can get on. The post name is [How To] Fixing "Origin Login Unavailable".
