Okay, now I'm getting what you're getting. It seems its an issue with the frequency of which the game is trying to call out to the web. When I'm in my bombshelter of an office, I used to be able to have this game up. Now I time out. If you can, when you're in range of some reliable wifi, put your phone in airplane mode and turn on wifi. Close the app if its still open and then fire it back up. I'm 90% sure it will work just fine.
Conclusion? Well, the game seems to be quite a bit more reliant on constant connection than it used to be. Any sort of connection stutter gets you a time out. This happens to me in my office, on the bus, and various other places. For me, it's not game breaking because I usually have access to wifi and/or a good 3g connection. For others, this could put a very bad taste in their mouth. It's compounded by the fact that Apples signal bar for 3g is very misleading. It updates slow enough that a sudden drop in signal won't be shown if it comes back a few moments later. Network dependent apps like Netflix and, apparently, Trade Nations, will drop connection/pause playback whenever there are these little "blips".
