    Restart iPhone.
    Reset Network Settings.
    Airplane mode ON then OFF.
    Restore firmware.
    Try another SIM.
    Try another WiFi AP (e.g. neighbour's)
    Try another ISP (e.g. neighbour's).

    Anything?
    App Store works fine here.

    I am getting this message when trying to update apps from the computer interface. The funny thing is, even though it comes up with that error, the app will still download.

    Since updating to iTunes 8 _and trying to connect to the US Store_ I'm getting a 'Could not complete the itunes Store request. The Store may be busy. Check your Internet connection or try again later' error coming up. BUT this is only on my iMac running 10.4.11, Whereas my laptop (using the same airport connection) but running Leopard has no problem at all. Both work fine on the AUS store. Furthermore I can still search the US store and even make purchases, but can't drill back to the 'home' button on iTunes without the same error.

    Anyone else experiencing the same thing?

    still having random problems - and this thread is about the iPhone. Theres not trouble with iTunes 8 for me. I can almost always connect to the iTunes Music store on iPhone but rarely can I connect to the App Store. It just says 'cannot connect to iTunes store" restarting the router works for a while - maybe a day or two, then problems persist. Safari has had no problems, weather has had no problems and stocks hasnt and maps hasnt.

    Maybe the router firewall on the main pc on our network is stopping the phone from accessing the internet, itunes specific? I dont know. I just need some ideas.
