View Full Version : Downloading apps from iphone keeps failing!

Hi all,

Just recently my iphone 3G has been unable to successfully download/update apps on 3G anymore. It loads it for 5 times and gives up. It keeps restarting and never finish the download.

What is going on!!! I recognise optus has been extremely slow these days but it seems to be getting worst and worst!!!

I tried to purchase 3 apps today on the phone and NONE OF THEM was able to be successfully downloaded!!!

This is due to Optus' connection constantly timing out. There is no way to fix this, other than to use a Wi-Fi hotspot. Do you have one nearby? As a rule of thumb, I never download apps over Optus 3G (yes, it has come to this).

As usual Virgin/Optus are saying there is nothing wrong with their network...

Yeah, i have the same problem with virgin :(

The provider is really bad, but the rates are excellent so im gonna stick with them for a while

Could it have to do with the iPhone software? I have only been having problems since around the time of 3.0

Or maybe Optus' network is just getting even worse (which wouldn't surprise me)
