You should check is if you can access the server at all via the 3G
network or from within the emulator.

For example, try accessing a page there from the web browser on the
device. Or try command line networking tools from the adb shell.

Your server is a real one, on the public internet, not some test
installation hiding behind a firewall, right? If unsure, email a
friend a link to a page on it, and make sure they can access that from
their pc.
