IPhone :: "Unable To Download Application" Happening With Increasing Frequency?
Jun 1, 2012
Has anyone else noticed that, upon updating or downloading an app, on both the iPad and iPhone, the "Unable to download application" error is happening with increasing frequency; especially in the last 12 months? The forums show that I'm not the first to experience this; but it is the increasing likeliness of occurance that annoys me. I would say one-in-three updates/downloads fail due to this error. This is more of an observation than anything else.
iPhone 4, iOS 5.1, Capacity: 32GB; Network: Three (UK)
The above shown that i am unable to update my purchase! you select any of the apps, also does not move. The only things that can be select is below rows(Featured, Top 25...).
Taking an example: When i want this app, i touch on the "Free" Button. However, i may had select it for hundreds times, Nothing shown up. it appears to me that the button is not functioning.Lastly, to review of the apps there were be picture for you. However, this is what i had for every apps.I had updated to iOS5.1 on iPhone 4 3GSM recently only till 4 days ago, i encountered this issue.
I wanted to find out how I could increase the application memory on my 8900 as much as possible. Right now it only reads about 109 out of the 256 MB. I've tried deleting some of the unused apps and such but even when I do that it only makes about a 1 MB difference.
I am unable to download any apps to my Curve 8520, i had tried a lot but since it is shwing Waiting option & asking to attach the device even after connecting the device am unable to download any apps in my mobile
I have purchased the NOKIA MOBILE TV HEADSET (DVB-H) (CU-14A) for my E7. I cannot download the mobile tv application form ovi store since it says that its only available for c7/n8, although the description does menton e7 support.How can I get this software other than form ovi store?
I am unable to download the mobile application meant for online booking of tickets. My gprs settings are fine. The message "this device cannot view this file " is displayed when I attempt the download. I am unable to check the windows update also for windows 6 on this phone.
I can download free application form ovi store, but not able to download paid application. I am from India and my operator is reliance (nokia support reliance only in India). Whenever I try to download paid application, I am getting error "Connection error. Unable to connect to server. Connection failed, please try again"´╗┐.I have enough balance in my account
I've deleted everything on my phone! Everything. I deleted all the Apps (except for the stock apps of course). All the music, movies, tv shows, books, ringtones, photos. I turned Photostream off. iCloud off. I tried restoring from backup (several times). Rebooting the phone. Shutting off the phone. Resetting network settings. I've tried every combination of iTunes settings (sync from wifi, open when connected, etc) that I could think off. I even deleted all the apps from iTunes (just in case). Nothing works! Yes, I know that if I do a 'restore as new' it will clean up the space. But then I lose all my text messages, all my app data settings (games savepoints etc). I do not want to lose all that!
I have just installed iOS v5.1 on my 3GS hoping that it would stop the bluetooth dropouts when connected to my car. This still hasn't fixed it, with something like 19 dropouts and reconnections in 25 kilometers. This happens everyday, therefore have had to cancel bluetooth connections. This really is a safety concern when driving.
Info: iPhone 3GS, iOS 5.1, connects to my car bluetooth but ke
I'm an engineer, and a collegue of mine has a friend (tedious link I know!) who works for a mobile phone manufacturer as an engineer. His take on the whole atenna issue is the following:
1. Sticking your hand over the join between the atennae short circuits them (we all knew this!)
2. The short circuit causes the two small antennae to form one much larger one (obvious I know...bear with me!)
3. This larger antenna has a different frequency to the small one.
4. The phone detects this and switches between frequencies.
Sounds simple in practice, but apparently it takes an age for the software to switch between the two frequencies. My guess would be this is to prevent the phone from hunting between signals. This could indeed be what Apple were talking about when they mentioned that the new phone placed lower demands on the network.
For the sake of making things easy to understand, have a read through the two artciles on Wikipedia and HowStuffWorks:
Basically, a Cell Tower has a finite number of frequencies it can use and assigns your phone to one of these frequencies. As you move around however, you'll be assigned different frequencies on different towers depending on what's available. As you can imagine, if a phone is super sensitive to variations in signal quality, it can reach a point where it jumps continuously between cell towers, placing high demand on all the switching hardware in the network. In reality, the user wouldn't notice any change in call quality if it stayed on one tower. By placing a delay in the frequency switching on the phone, your call will no longer be shuffled around towers constantly and will instead stick to one cell tower for longer, reducing the amount of juggling the network servers have to do and hence reducing dropped calls.
Here in lies the problem. When you change the length of the antenna on the phone, you cut out it's ability to see one segment of frequencies. The phone then starts looking for another available frequency. This now takes forever. Although the frequency may well be avaible, by the time it's found it, the call has been dropped as the slightly weaking signal it is expecting as you move away from the original tower has completely dissapeared.
The design of the antenna is undoubtably a fundamental design issue, which has somehow been overlooked or ignored. Let's not get into the politics of that here. What this does highlight however is that, if the delay between frequency switching is removed, reduced or in some way made smarter, the switch will be so quick, it won't have any noticeable effect on your call as it will just be another frequency switch similar to that between a towers.
i have and iphone 4s and i m using ios7.1.2. the others section sows 4.02 gbs in itunes. last week it was showing 3.5 gbs. it stared with around 2 gbs and it keeps increasing. i dont know how to solve this problem. i dont wish to update my software because i like ios7.1.2 and prefer it over 8.1.1.
i just got my iphone 4s, and my apps like pinterest, facebook, etc. are increasing in size. how do i delete the apps' data cache without reinstalling the app?! this is frustrating.i don't want to have my regular apps how my iphone storage space! any ideas to get this resolved? is there an iphone app that can manually delete data cache?
I Had a new battery installed in my iPhone 5 today and the battery charge has not increased at all. Still at 16% the same as it was when I got it back 3 hours ago. Is it's to be expected or do I need to return to the Apple store?

I've been struggling with battery drain for a while now. Previously, I had my email set to "fetch every 15 minutes." I noticed that my usage rate each hour would go up by about 30 minutes even while the phone remained in my pocket on standby, with my battery draining around 10% each hour. I changed my email to "fetch every hour" and saw my battery life increasing. Finally, I changed the email setting to fetch "manually" and have noticed that now my usage rate more accurately reflects my actual usage and I am satisfied with my battery life. It seems like I have narrowed down my battery issue to my email settings. However, I would like to be able to have my email sent to my phone without having to manually update it each time. Any email settings or other settings I could change to increase my battery life?
i just purchased my iphone, and i found my cellular usage is increasing while i was on wifi the entire time? i thought i'm completely off the cellular network while connected to wifi, but this doesn't seem to be the case.
