    Weirdest thing. I've been blocked form following people for the second time this week for following too many too fast (which wasn't even that many). Anyways I just went ahead and tried to follow a few people on my PC using the same account and it worked. I then tried my phone and it didn't..
    LOL does anyone have any idea what's happening ?

    Maybe you have an issue with your IP address.

    Instagram have limit on actions per short period of time. Since ADS released you can do lesser than earlier. Try to not over do that limits of actions per hour, for example. I don't know how many, but you can count by yourself with this 2examples for one week you got.

    Phone instagram client and your PC are using different ways to make requests to Instagram and perform actions. Sometimes when they blocking you for a few hours you can have limited access (block for doing something you were doing too much or too often) with only that device/method to to make requests to Instagram and perform actions. And I started to think that sometimes if you overdo it more and more many times (in the meaning that you have already got many blocks before getting new one) or if you go harder they can block the whole your account with every device/method to make requests to Instagram and perform actions.

    Something like that =)

    And yes, it is quiet possible that the ip that you are using with your phone is a dynamic (public) ip that have some kind of bad history.

    Must be an IP problem for sure, doesn't feel like it can be anything else. Try to reset your mobile IP, I believe it should be resetting on its own after you stay disconnected for a while, you should probably check with your provider to see though.
