Gmail, iPhone, and IMAP woes.

As of a week or so ago, I'm unable to check my gmail account on my iPhone using IMAP. Please advise.

I get this error message: The mail server "imap.googlemail.com" is not responding. Verify that you have entered the correct account info in Mail settings.
The settings are correct, as far as I can tell, and I hadn't changed them when the problem started. Originally I had imap.gmail.com as the server, and changing it to imap.googlemail.com worked for a day or two -- then it putzed out again. I've done a captcha reset, which did nothing. It's an iPhone 4. Poking around the Google forums I'm seeing many people with the same problem, but no official recognition of it.
What could it be? Please note that writing this has stretched my "how computers work" capability to its limits, so I'd appreciate simple answers. Oh, and I'm using IMAP for this reason
