I found that I haven't been able to upgrade my apps or download new apps since yesterday. This has happened before and a reset settings worked, yet this time it doesn't... The only way I the apps to finish upgrading is to go on iTunes or use my wifi and disable using cellular data. I have an iPhone 4 for Sprint. I have tried a hard reset, downloading iExplorer and deleting the downloads file, signing in and out of my account on my phone, reset all settings, reset network settings, and even a system restore to my last back up, which was yesterday when I realized there was a problem. I also have to mention that whenever I try to install an app using cellular data it goes on waiting, then loading, then it loads about a little more than half way through, and it repeats. It never finishes, it goes into a cycle until I get a pop up stating "_______ is could not be downloaded at this time." with options of "done" or "retry" and when I press done, it should stop trying to install itself yet it goes into that same cycle again where it goes waiting, loading, blue bar 1/2 way through, and then repeat again... I do not use podcasts so that could not be the problem, I have none in my downloads list.
This is a common issue with Sprint right now. My suggestion would be to contact Sprint's customer service to make them aware of your issue (explain that your data works but downloading apps does not work and everything you have tried). They are "looking into this" issue right now and hopefully the more people that complain about it will get them to a solution faster. I've been told that there is an issue with the relationship between Sprint and Apple's app store, but I'm not sure how accurate that is, although it seems right since everything else works.
I hope they find a solution, soon. Very frustrating not being able to download apps without using iTunes.
Hey I'm having the same issue too, and believe me when I say I have tried every fix.
My Android devices download over Sprint's network fine, but my iPhone 4s downloads over WiFi just fine.
I have a feeling this is going to end poorly and has something to do with "Network Vision" and some new (or newly implemented) kind of data compression or something.
